This is a Bathroom Fly or Drain Fly in the Moth Fly subfamily Psychodinae, a group that is considered an annoyance to many home owners and tenants because Bathroom Flies breed in the sludge that forms in indoor plumbing. According to BugGuide: “Adults 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.”
