Corethrella brakeleyi (Coquillett), male
Moved from Frog-biting midges. ID'd from specimen, now a photo-voucher. Thanks Tom.

Art Borkent was kind enough to send me a copy of his world revision of Corethrella, which allowed for this ID.

 
Corethrella brakeleyi
Brad, great job getting this tiny fly identified to species!
Do you think this other picture of a female taken from the same location the year before is the same species?

 
Females of brakeleyi / condita are indistinguishable
However, it may be a 'reasonable' assumption that they are the same.
