Drain Fly / Moth Fly - Clogmia albipunctata
Churchill Woods Forest Preserve, DuPage County, Illinois, USA

This is one of those small black "flies" you'll see around a floor drain in a basement or somewhere there is no trap. I always thought they were flies, and I know you can control them by pouring household bleach down the drain once in awhile.. but now that I've photographed them, they look like.. moths? I dunno. I found this specimen in an outhouse. EEW! Gross! What the heck are they?
