Moth Fly - Clytocerus

Moth Fly - Clytocerus
Clark's Creek South, Pierce County, Washington, USA

Moved from Moth Flies.

Thanks David.

I should add the word "tentative"
to all the Moth Fly I.D.'s. It looks correct to me, but I can't see the genitalia in photos, and I'm still learning them too.

Good to know. Thanks for the added info.

Moved from ID Request.

Not sure
how to tell Stupkaiella from Clytocerus, but the Stupkaiella in the guide have black dots on the wings, and yours matches this Clytocerus pretty well. (FWTW)

I found it with this one

I was thinking maybe it could be a sexual dimorphism.
