Is this one of the Diopsoidea family?

I've been going back over some previous images to see if I can get somewhere with identification. This one was from South Devon in July.

My starting point guess was Diopsoidea of some type. Probably impossible to fully identify but is my guess on the correct lines?

Re: Is this one of the Diopsoidea family?

Thanks, this is a group where I have had little personal experience, except for Loxocera. I've found it now in the keys and can see why I was failing to get started.

I'm using Darwyn Summer's 2004 keys but I struggled to find a beginning point and wasn't reaching the Psilidae section.
