I have a doubt for this one. The wings are milky (leucoptera ?), but the black stripe of abdomen is not very broad (crassipennis ?).
How can i tell the two species apart ?

Hello Jessica, the black spots on the wings should be much weaker and (hard to see) the black stripe on the abdomen should be shiny and broad for E. leucoptera - compare the gallery https://www.dipte...to_id=2989. I think it's a male crassipennis.
Greetings, Eric
