A male. According to the website "The Dragonflies of Taiwan" (check it out -- it's excellent!), two subspecies occur on the island: O. pruinosum clelia and O. pruinosum neglectum. Based on the red colour of the anterior-most abdominal segments, I think this individual is neglectum. Compare http://taiwandragonfly.blogspot.ca/2013/...

Drainage ditch in agricultural area near Sun Moon Lake.
Thanks to Paul Davis for the ID.
