Spotted this near Chennai on 13-Jan-2018
I usually see green ones, sometimes in great quantities.
This is a female, I suppose.
Experts, please suggest genus.
Thank you.

Each user has a maximum of ten new threads per day (24 hours). Just to prevent a single user from sending scores of his unidentified fly photos at once and thus drain out any other threads.
