Is this also an Oplodontha viridula? Most photos on the internet show a very green version...
Seen in Brussels the 23/07/2006 on Angelica sylvestris

If it is still rather fresh (just emerged) the abdominal green colour will not have fully developed.

The rather milky film effect on the wings might indicate it is fresh too.
