Interesting
Have not heard of this family before. The details and habits of the family fit well with my fly.

Thanks for the input Brad.

It very closely resembles some images of Pseudatrichia, for instance https://www.flickr.com/photos/32280032@N05/3340295829

 
Long 7 segments and unique wings
The head, abdomen and wing veins seem to match this one very closely:
Genus = Pseudatrichia: Good Luck!
