Scalloped Spreadwing (Lestes praemorsus decipiens)

As their name implies Spreadwings can be easily distinguished from other damselflies by their habit of holding their wings wide open at rest. Scalloped spreadwing can be identified by its scalloped pattern on the thorax and very long, up curved anal appendage (insert). It is rather rare damselfly of edges of ponds, lakes and marshes in lowlands up to lower hills in both dry and wet zone.
