Could you help ID this fly?

Photographed in Romania, 12.08.2012. Found near a forest, body size around 8-9 mm.

Male Eliozeta?

Looks like Phasiinae, and most other genera lack numerous strong abdominal bristles.

Thank you!

This is a focus stack of 59 exposures, f5.6, ISO 200 made with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon MP-E 65 lens in 19.08.2012

A tripod is used of course and my software choice for processing the stack is Zerene Stacker.

Thank you, crisarg! I suspected it to be stacked, but 59 exposures. Wow!

I wonder if there is any camera that can make those exposures with focus shifting automatically ... I mean, instead of manually focusing between each exposure.

Of course, there is.

The Olympus does have an automated stacking function. And it works flawless!
