Long-legged Green Fly Condylostylus sp. Sciapodinae sub-family Dolichopodidae family
Very beautiful and very small, they perch on board leaves and keep guarding their territory. Very agile and quick flier. They are very common to see, if you look very keenly. I have seen many specimens before and none had the black spots on the wings like this and the colors are very intense. There is one more specimen in WS which does not have the black spots.
