Many thanks for your information.
With the guidance that tells me, change the title to try to go further in such identification.

Kind regards

I agree with Theo and you have both viridicyanea and gentilis.

i think that it has a presutural ia but i can't say so with certainty. The frons is quite narrow and coupled with a perceived presutural ia (far side laying low, near side looks like a socket) we have M. gentilis male. In doubt, Melinda cf gentilis male.

Best wishes,
John

I appreciate your information, with which I edit the title to favor other opinions, and add another photograph, to try to clarify doubts, although I do not know if this new photo helps ....

Best wishes,

yes the photo helps: there is no ia so it is a male Melinda viridicyanea.

the prs ia can be difficult to see at times, so a good dorsal is best with this genus. I don't know what is at this prs ia position in the first photo. I see a slender black smudge, so i want to be careful with judgement. The second photo makes it obvious that a prs ia does not exist. Thank you for adding the photo.

Best wishes,
John
