Hello, this is my first time on the forum. I think this is Chironomidae. Can any more be said?
It was near Chicago, June 7, 2004.
Thanks for any help.

Hello Robirdman,
This one does not belong to the family Chironomidae, but it is a Sciaridae!

Thaks very much. I thought it looked strange for that family. I must have put down the wrong family earlier.
