Can anyone conform my tentative genus ID and suggest a possible species for this small, green metallic calliphorid (I think!).

31.8.10 c 6mm Lesbos, Greece

Many thanks Theo. I'll assume that is as far as it can be taken with just photos unless anyone knows different. It's a different Rhyncomyia sp. than any I've seen photos of, and don't know what species are possible for Lesbos. You can see Turkey from where i found this, so it could be a Turkish/eastern species, rather than something more typical of Greece.
