Leucopis male terminalia

I know this is a bit challenging (to say the least!), but I have taken a male Leucopis (Chamaeyiidae) which has a very large aedeagus (if I have interpreted the terminal structures correctly). I don't have descriptions or illustrations for all the British species, but even so this does not appear to match diagrams in various papers/manual extracts I have. I wonder if it strikes anyone with experience of Leucopis males as anything in particular?

Failing that, who might be working on this genus and might be able to assist if I sent the specimen to them?

23 August, 2017 swept from ash tree in suburban garden, Shrewsbury.
