Cf. Benthalia brunneipennis
This may be Einfeldia brunneipennis, now sometimes placed in Benthalia. A key to the group has recently been published (Zootaxa 3275) but I have not seen it.

Moved
Moved from Midges.

Chironomus group
Might be an Einfeldia (s. lat.), based on the swollen base of the superior volsella.
