An interesting find while walking at Windsor Nature Park, Singapore, on 12 March 2021. A Predatory fungus gnat (Macrocera sp.) spotted hanging below a leaf. It has very long antennae, many times the length of its body.

Fungus gnats are flies. This particular fungus gnat genus is part of the same family (Keroplatidae) as the luminous 'glowworms' of Australia and New Zealand.

@sohkamyung wth does it need such long antennae for? Those must make it hard to fly as well.

@penguin42 No idea. It's tiny, so I presume the long antennae aren't too much of a hindrance.
