identification dragonfly | male Anatya guttata (Libellulidae)
« on: Mon, 06 April 2015, 04:25:40 PM »
Hi all,

I found this dragonfly in August on Plantation Peperpot, Suriname. It's a common one and around 4 cm.

Hello,
It is most probably Anatya guttata.
The superior thin anal appendages curved upward are the best criterium.

Indeed Denis, it's a male from that species. A beautiful photo!
