|First dragonfly of the season for me.|
The scarlet skimmer or ruddy marsh skimmer, Crocothemis servilia,is a species of dragonfly of the family Libellulidae, native to east and southeast Asia and introduced to Jamaica, Florida, and Hawaii.
It is a medium sized blood red dragonfly with a thin black line along the mid-dorsal abdomen. It breeds in ponds, ditches, marshes, open swamps and rice fields.
There are two known subspecies; Crocothemis servilia servilia Drury, 1773 and Crocothemis servilia mariannae Kiauta, 1983. C. s. mariannae lacks the mid-dorsal black stripe.
