Tom you're going to love this, its a new subfamily for bugguide!
This is Trichophya pilicornis (Trichophyinae), suspected to be introduced from Europe although it really doesn't occur in disturbed habitat like other non-natives. This is the sister group to the Habrocerinae (both are closely related to Tachyporinae).
