I'm fairly certain it is Diptera, but I don't have a great idea what the family name below that would be. I guess that would narrow it down to tens of thousands of species. I think we can safely rule out the familiar craneflies and midges, which reduces the burden...

Some species of Xylophagus is my best guess:

I expect that still leaves dozens of possible species. Pretty much no chance for an amateur like me to ID this to the species level...
