Found on 13. June 2017 near Kerzers, Switzerland, 437 m on a meadow.

It looks very characteristic with its spotted eyes, green abdomen and elongated antennae but I am still not even sure about the family...
Unfortunately it did not give me the time to take pictures of the upper side...

Kind regards,
Ocellar view attached the following image:
