Family is the best I can do with this one, unfortunately. With luck, others will be able to take it further.

Coreidae for sure
I think what you're seeing as an extension on the dorsal surface is an optical illusion involving the membranous part of the wing, which is actually lying flat. Not sure about the underside. Any other angles?

 
Fooled me.
You may be right about it being an optical illusion, but it sure fooled me. I added a photo. Thanks for your help.
