I think mine looks a lot like this one, said to be a female scorpion fly, i.e. without the 'stinger'. It has similar length antenna, wing shape and pattern, green colour behind the head and red tipped abdomen. If you zoom in on my image I also think you can just make out the beak. But no means an expert at all.

At 1hr19m into the feature length film "Chalk", which I have just watched, this little critter was shown.

Very interesting film, by the way.
