Libellulidae - Neurothemis fluctuans

Neurothemis fluctuans is one of the most common odonate species in South East Asia. One will spot this species easily at open ponds. The male is in red colour but the female is rather dull brown/yellow colour. Neurothemis fluctuans quite similar to N. fulvia, but both could be distinguished by the margins of terminal hyaline area of the wings.
