No identification made yet.
No interactions present.
I think Rod is probably right but the definitive tests are 1) do the antennae have 13 or 14 segments and 2) are the wings shorter than the abdomen.
The angle is not great to gauge the wings but they appear shorter than the abdomen and are there 13 or 14 segments, I cannot see that clearly. If there are 14 then it is probably Tipula paludosa.
