@S Frazier, hope you could help us (Leana and I are now reviewing Philippine Neurothemis spottings) ..

I have IDd this before as Neurothemis fluctuans, same as with http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/222.... But I have been seeing similar images IDd as either N. fluctuans or N. ramburii.

From the Philippine spottings, I am sure about the following:
N. fluctuans - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/160...
N. ramburii - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/311...

But with the 2 fluctuans, I still have doubt. Thanks in advance :)

Hi Little Rex, pls consider joining the Odonata in the Philippines mission, http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1701.... We would love to have this lovely spotting included in the mission. Thanks!!
