Id help please - Snipefly, Sciara, Tephritidae, Deerfly and a Cleg!

Hello folks, I'd be really grateful for confirmations/corrections on the attached images all taken 24/06/2017:

1. Chrysopilus asiliformis - Little Snipefly?, Panshanger Park - Lodge Meadow TL281131
2. Sciara hemerobioides? Panshanger Park - Lodge Meadow TL283129
3. Xyphosia miliaria? Panshanger Park - Lodge Meadow TL283129
4. Chrysops caecutiens - Splayed Deerfly? Panshanger Park - Triangle Field TL284127 Sorry no better angle - it didn't hang around once it realised there wasn't a meal to be had as I wasn't wearing the shirt!
5. Haematopota pluvialis - Notch-horned Cleg? Panshanger Park - Chisel Shelf TL285126

Thanks for your help.

Ian

Given the extent of the shading along the wing margin I think the Chrysops is probably relictus - caecutiens has clear wings below the sub apical spot. Unfortunately eye patterns do not seem to be a definitive guide to Chrysops sp.

Thanks Neil, unfortunately it didn't hang around to let me get a better angle.
