Moth Fly - Clogmia

Moth Fly - Clogmia
East Greenwich, Kent County, Rhode Island, USA
August 30, 2010
Size: ~1.5mm
Psychodinae. Drawn by light, but dislikes the flash. I never manage a second shot because of it.

The antennae remind me of horsetails (Equisetum).

Moved from Moth Flies.

Moved from Flies. I think the last three segments of the antenna are as long as the rest, which leads the key to three genera that can only be distinguished by microscopic examination or an expert.
