Today I went to Caramulo mountain (serra do caramulo) and I was in Caramulinho - about 1000 m elevation. I saw this beautiful chloropid. A Meromyza sp. specimen. Hope Jere will add more info for the ID. Smile or anyone who wants to tell possible species. thanks in advance.

Meromyza femorata Macquart, 1835 (Chloropidae, Chloropinae).
Though Meromyza spp. normally only can be identified after the male genitalia this species, a female, may be correctly named: All over yellow, the palpi black distally and exceptionally thickened hind femora. A confirmed host plant is Dactylis glomerata. All Meromyza spp. loose their greenish appearance after have been killed.

Thanks, von Tschirnhaus.

The aforementioned plant Dactylis glomerata exists in Caramulinho, indeed: http://www.flora-...+glomerata
