Moth Fly - Eurygarka - male

Moth Fly - Eurygarka - Male
Mobile (Dog River), Mobile County, Alabama, USA

I was thinking Clogmia except the antennae look different from most drain flies, to me. They're not as "hairy." The only one I've seen similar, is the drain fly I posted this past March.

Moved from Moth Flies.

Moth fly
It looks like a male Eurygarka sp. Female Eurygarka hold their wings "roof/tent like" over the abdomen while the males hold them horizontally like this. The bronze colored hairs on the thorax are typical of some Eurygarka I've collected in Tennessee, but the same species occur in Alabama. The black antennae with white bands is also typical.
