This is one of the Clinocerinae, family Empididae. They are aquatic dance flies.

Thank you Paul and Kahis.
P.S. Jere, I formulated your specialisation as " around aquatic Brachycera excluding Hilara". Now I have to change it as " including Empididae too"Smile.
P.P.S. Should I understand your silence about Horse-faced Empidida(, that it is neither Hilara nor Clinocera?
