Gampsocera numerata (Heeger, 1858), Chloropidae. A relatively rare species with sexual dimorphism: The males possess variable blackish markings on the wings which fade away as well in dry as in alcohol (if not absolute) preserved specimens, the reason that a variety was described as inornata Corti, 1909, meaning "without picture wings". Surely the genus Gampsocera Schiner, 1862 will be synonymized with Elachiptera Macquart, 1835 or it will become a senior synonym of Lasiochaeta Corti, 1909 after DNA study in the future.
