Thread subject: :: Unknown, Possible Simuliidae?

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.

Thank you so much!! I've been struggling to identify this guy for so long, so it's so amazing to have an identification!
