Thank you for your time.

excellent suggestion, Tristram. I think that you are correct. look here:

unbelievable. I didn't know Chloropidae could be so interesting.
I have the specimen, so maybe I can find keys to identify it. I know where to find them now. I will try to get some photos of live species.

Thank You!
