Possibly Diplocladius cultriger
This may be Diplocladius cultriger.

Compare Tom Murray's midges.

Moved
Moved from Midges.

Orthocladiinae
I can't make out a trace of an M-Cu vein so this must be Orthocladiinae.

It seems to have a forked gonostylus which is unusual, but the condition occurs in some form in multiple genera.

Pictures that would help: Eye hairy or bare, closeup of thorax showing hairs.

 
Added shots
Do these help?

 
Some day
These can go to Orthocladiinae for now. Eventually I may be able to put more genus IDs on Orthocladiinae.
