I’m trying to identify a small winged insect about the size of a pencil eraser.

Based on this BugGuide image, we are confident this is a Moth Fly in the subfamily Psychodinae, the group that contains a common household pests known as Bathroom Flies which according to BugGuide are “often found around sewage installations, in public washrooms, and bathrooms in homes, and are attracted to light; larvae live in organic sludge that forms on inner surfaces of drains and sewage pipes; pupae occur on the surface of the organic film that the larvae have been living in.”
