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:

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
