I collected this in Idaho, USA, last summer. Found in forest habitat, water sources nearby. Size is incredibly small (it's on a cardstock point in the image for scale). Can provide better pictures if that would help! I've never seen anything like it before.

Sciaridae. Simuliidae have short antennae.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
