[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For me is not clear the differentiation between at least two similar species of this genre Pantotima. I see that P. prasina and P. viridissima, are very similar. Maybe somebody knows well this genre and can helps me in the classification.
Thanks in advanced

Post data: Thanks to Marcello Romano (Marcellor) for his clasification as Palomena prasina.

Hola Ricard
otima toma del insecto y muy buenas colores, DOF y POV.
me gusto el BG .


Hello Ricard,
great shot of this beautiful Palomena (not Pantotima).
This is Palomena prasina.

Lateral margins of thorax rounded, convex... Palomena viridissima (Poda, 1761)

- Lateral margins of thorax slightly sinuous but not convex... Palomena prasina (Linnaeus, 1761).


Hello Ricard,
Wow! You present here very lovely and artistic shot!
I can see the very beautiful overall green colourations here, with excellent POV & composition.
Also, sharp details and nice focusing here.
Well done and Thanks for sharing thie lovely photo.
Best wishes,

Hi Ric,
I am just marking this interesting picture to come back with detailed comment soon :)
