Double-spined Darner

Gynacantha sp.


The head and thorax are mostly light green with no patterns. Wings are pretty much clear with a slight tint of yellow at the base and a dark pterostigma at the end of each wing to assist the insect in gliding. The abdomen is green and slowly fades darker in each segment. The females have two prominent spines under the last abdominal segment (see photo no. 5), hence the name double-spined/two-spined.


Spotted inside my room which it accidentally got into.
