Ephydrid

From pitfall trap on saltmarsh/shingle re-creation, Rye Harbour NR East Sussex, 14/7/17. With its narrowed eye is this Glenanthe ripicola?

Yes, this is Glenanthe. There is a very slight chance you may have another species, but this looks fine for ripicola to me. (Need to check genitalia to be absolutely sure.)
