Looks to me like Exorista, but I've been wrong before...

Yup - looks like Exorista rustica (group - including mimula, tubulosa, rustica) to me (mustard-coloured face dusting, long pointy abdomen, parafacial bristles, 3 post-dc, shadow-fold on median vein) ... most probably E. rustica itself (based on appearance & being very common this time of year) Smile

[tubulosa looks almost identical but is rarer and needs genitalia, while mimula is usually much smaller]
