Photographed just now from Zhejiang China. Body length approx. 3mm with rather curious antennae. What family could it possibly belong to? Thanks.

Probably genus Elachiptera or close to it.

Terrific! |t Thank you Jan Maca for enlightening me. Yes, this one has antennae very similar to those of Elachiptera tuberculifer (other details differ though).
