It appear to be Fuchsian with determinant in lamda squared.
I usually similfy these by hand:
I think that's what you want.
These are called Möbius transforms and
are associated with the Poincare
nonEuclidean plane.
Fuchsian groups are a big well studied area.
A tip is to multiply by (z/z) and (-1/Lamda)/(-1/Lamda)
to get a form where it is:
By bilinear they mean that the 2by2:
multiplies when the the functions are taken like f(g(z)).
These matrices are also associated as well with Klein groups and 
Teichmuller space
in Mathematics.
