This is a Rhodesiella species, Chloropidae. It cannot be identified further from a photo.

Chloropidae, Rhodesiellinae: Rhodesiella ?rugosa (Lamb, 1912). Identified Rhodesiella species are not known from La RĂ©union. Lamb (1912, Trans. Linn. Soc. London (Ser. 2) 15: 303-348, pls. 15-16) described on p.333 Meroscinis rugosa from the Seychelles, transferred to Rhodesiella by Bezzi (1919). The description agrees with the details to be seen in the photographs. The species is also known from Saudi Arabia (Palearctic Region).
