Clearly a emerald, but the photo is insufficiently clear to make out definitively the key distinguishing features. Colouration overall is more suggestive of Tau Emerald, but what look like dorsal extensions of the lateral markings on abdominal segments 8 and 9 are more indicative of Australian Emerald. Frontal markings are not visible and pterostigmata are not resolved.

Harvey, would the green eyes make it Australian as Tau always have brown.
