a Moth Fly (Psychodidae) ...?

I think I have worked this down to being one of the Moth Flies (Psychodidae). Looking around WWW it seems there are good reasons for being cautious about id'ing to species, but this one seems to have very elegant wing markings that I haven't managed to match online.

Can anyone get me any closer to an id?

One of a small group apparently resting on an isolated, young Prunus stem within mixed oak/birch woodland near Sheffield UK.

thanks in anticipation, Alan

(... a short while later! maybe Clytocerus sp. perhaps Clytocerus ocellaris ?)
