Genus: Libellula

Species: L. fulva

The Scarce Chaser (Libellula fulva) is a species of dragonfly. The adult male has a bright blue abdomen with patches of black, while the adult female and juvenile male each have a bright orange abdomen. It is about 45 mm in length with an average wingspan of 74 mm. It is distributed throughout Europe. This dragonfly is considered a species of special concern in Great Britain due to loss of its specific ideal habitat.

This species lives on floodplains and marshes with dense, abundant vegetation, and females deposit their eggs in slow-current streams. Once deposited by the female, the eggs lie embedded in the mud of the riverbed and the larvae develop underwater for usually two years. Adults live from May to August, during which time they mate and lay eggs.

Dimensioni: 42-45 mm, apertura alare 65-75 mm. Descrizione: entrambi i sessi, nella fase immatura, hanno colorazione arancione con banda nera dorsale sull'addome e venature centrali, delle ali, gialle. La femmina adulta rimane arancione-marrone, molto scura in età avanzata, con banda dorsale nera mentre il maschio è scuro con occhi blu, fronte e faccia nere e addome ricoperto, ad esclusione degli ultimi tre segmenti, di pruinosità blu-azzurra. Sia nel maschio che nella femmina le punte delle ali sono macchiate di nero mentre le ali posteriori presentano alla base una vistosa macchia nera triangolare. Questi caratteri sono utili per distinguere i maschi di questa specie da quelli di Orthetrum cancellatum che invece presentano ali completamente trasparenti. Libellulla fulva si distingue facilmente anche dalla congenere Libellula depressa per l'addome meno dilatato e per le macchie nere evidenti solo sulle ali posteriori. Distribuzione e habitat: diffusa su tutto il territorio italiano presso laghi, lanche, fiumi, fontanili o comunque in ambienti con acque ferme o debolmente correnti e presenza di vegetazione spondale e boschi. Periodo di attività: adulti da fine aprile a fine agosto.

Bonjour Roberto,
Ai manqué ce bel exemplaire de la L. fulva. Belle présentation en diagonale, une autre image typique. J'ai vu cette espèce ici aussi, mais pas d'image.
Amicalement
