I think the identification is correct. Can be seen the typical rear vulvaria scale of this species . Is also identified by an expert in this site: http://www.biodiversidadvirtual.org/inse...
Greetings.

This female appears to have far too much blue on the lower half of the eyes for a Crocothemis erythraea, which usually only has a narrow blue line at the lower rear portion of the otherwise Scarlet eye.
I think John Curd may be able to help with the ID.
