Number 6770.  This is a fungus gnat. They typically breed in very damp/wet soil having a high organic matter content. Indoors, the best control is to let the soil of potted plants dry out as much as practical between waterings. The adults are harmless nuisance pests, but the larvae sometimes can cause damage to very tender plant parts.
