Thanks! I read about the Alderfly on wiki and it says we only have 5 species here in Norway, and this is the most common one to find close to water.
It only took me 3 months to find out, hehe :-P

I think that's it! Congrats! Obviously a hard job. If I compare the patterns of the veins and markings I think your ID is correct!
