Hello,

this specimen comes from Valencia (Spain), and it was in an Achillea filipendulina inflorescence in a garden close to orange tree fields and mediterranean shrubland, at 5 Km from the sea. Does anybody knows the species? If special characters are needed I have the specimen.

Thanks and sorry for the quality of the image.

I think the only Odontomyia-like soldierfly that can have an (almost) entirely green abdomen is Oplodontha viridula...

Thanks a lot Paul!,

I was watching later more specimens in the same locality, with the abdomen with the usually typical dot on the upper side of Oplodontha viridula. It seems that is this species.

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
