Phantom cranefly?

I took this shot back in the summer, by a woodland stream on my Pembrokeshire farm. The white tarsi on the very long legs stood out as it 'danced' in front of the stream bank. The photo's not good enough for me to get very far with Stubbs' keys, but I thought that somebody might be able to place it for me, at least to genus? thanks very much, Matt

It is local but widely distributed, including in Pembrokeshire.  Can I please have the details for the record?
