Hi,

I think this small diptera (2-3mm) could be a Chironominae from its general outlook.
Is it correct. Any idea of the genus?
Thanks for your help,

FRV

Probably Orthocladiinae. The front legs are too short for Chironominae and most Chironominae have larger eyes.

Chironominae usually fly during warm weather. Winter Chironomidae are mostly Orthcladiinae and Diamesinae.
