Moved
Moved from ID Request. I think I see three rows of spines on the front tibia; D. spinipes is the only New York species with three rows and otherwise matches.

Just a guess and probably wrong,what about
Dilophus or close?

March fly, Dilophus sp.
Nice images, particularly the mouth parts shot.
