I think it belongs to subfamily Ceratopogoninae. The halteres are visible just below where the mid legs and wing intersect. Can you post a picture of the rest of it?

Definitely Ceratopogoninae. I'll try to find a genus name.

Calyptopogon cf. gibbosus (Wiedemann, 1824)

Some new species were described in 1995 and I do not have the paper:
Saha, N.C., S. Sinha, S.K. Das Gupta and S. Sarkar. 1995. The Calyptopogon species (Ceratopogonidae, Diptera) from India. Journal of the Bengal Natural History Society 14:29-34

Please submit to gallery.

Sybmitted images need to be placed in their albums manually and it may last a while till I find the time to so that. I have my own 'backdoor' and can attach attachments from the forum to the Gallery. I just added both your king-size images. Wink

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.
