Different image of same specimen.
Hope it helps. I was having trouble getting the right image selected & added into BGN. I have one other option that shows the Wing bases from Dorsal view, but doesn't show the tip of the abdomen.

 
The dorsal wing view should be a good one to have.
That view should show the shape of the veins / stridulatory area better, which is somewhat different in each species.
