Description:

Sorry about how blurry this is. It was moving (running) quite fast across my gaiters. It was bigger than a midge, the markings on the antennae struck me as different, so I tried to get a picture for identification.
This was on heathland.

It certainly bears a likeness to the photo on the EOL site, Moo, even showing the white patches of the antennae.
