Spear-winged fly.
I'm sorry, I forget the family and genus names.

 
According to my Borror DeLong
According to my Borror DeLong book - the family name is Lonchopteridae and they mention only four NA species all in the genus Lonchoptera. Hope that helps. Thanks for getting to the Spear-winged part.
