Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults can be distinguished by the fact that the wings of most damselflies are held along, and parallel to, the body when at rest.Damselflies are also usually smaller than dragonflies and weaker fliers in comparison, and their eyes are separated.


Damselflies undergo incomplete metamorphosis, with an aquatic nymph stage

You need to remove this spotting from the Butterflies & Moths of the World mission and then add it to the Global Dragonflies & Damselflies misson.
