Hi Victor, I think Beris is correct and it's possibly a female B. vallata: yellow abdomen and wings, dark stigma.
Greetings, Eric

Thank you, Eric !
I am a little bothered by greenish breasts and rather yellow legs.
Could it be Beris morrisii female ?

The antenna is too short for vallata.
I think the abdomen looks orange, but actually isn't.
In any case, it is not morrisii, since the vertex is broad.

So I am leaning towards B. chalybata.

This is probably the best option. Thank you Theo !
