Hmm you might be right. I think that looks like that genus, I had collected some Corydalus cornutus from the same location the following year but they look different than this one. I will upload a dorsal view!

Do you have any other views of this insect?

The time of year seen would probably indicate that this is a Summer Fishfly (Chauliodes pectinicornis). However, there are differences in coloration that can be seen with a dorsal view that can distinguish the Summer Fishfly from the Spring Fishfly (Chauliodes rastricornis).

Here are links from Bugguide:
