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!

Thanks for the explanation Paul. It definitely stopped me from flooding the forum with my threads Wink

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
