Is this Sylvicola fenestralis ?

Seen on the underside surface of a pitched roof, in a dark place, of course.
About 8 mm long.

PS - it's obviously a somewhat lightened image.

Not sure you can tell which it is without looking at the genitalia really. S. cinctus is very similar, and more common, too.

Ah, not as straightforward as I had hoped.

Thanks Ian.
