Moved
Moved from Flies. I am following MND for the family name for now. The family guide page can be edited for whatever name is in vogue this year.

Holy *bleep*!!!
I think this is a Canthyloscel[id]idae (=Synneuridae), and if so, probably Synneuron decipiens, which would be a new family for bugguide...do you have any other pics? Would be great to get a clearer photo....

 
I don't remember off the top
I don't remember off the top of my head, but I will check to see if any of the other images I have are usable.

 
From both pics...
I am pretty sure this is that fly - congrats, a new family for the guide!
