Sorry, the picture is not mine, in case it interests I can ask the owner to load it here.

Ive seen some whitish abdomens but never like that, it seems transparent and "fluid", pehaps its young or maybe any illness? I have references they are parasites but not as paratized ? Thanks in advance

This is a freshly emerged male Gymnosoma, that's why the colours are not yet fixed (the wings are somewhat milky too).

Have a look at this sequence Wink :
