[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Chalcolestes viridis is found across southern and central Europe. In the eastern mediterranean it is replaced by Chalcolestes parvidens with areas of overlap in Italy and the Balkans. C. viridis is found on many mediterranean islands including Corsica, Sicily, Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, in the Maghreb in North Africa, Turkey and the Middle East. However many of the old records for C. viridis in the east of its range could be for C. parvidens. It occurs in still or slow flowing water in ditches, ponds, lakes and canals, with overhanging willows, alders or birches, which are used for breeding. Of all the European Lestes it is the species, along with C. parvidens, that will lay eggs in where there is running water. The adults are often found in the bushes which grow over or alongside water.

Status in Britain it was a rare vagrant and is now a new colonist. It is widespread on Jersey.
