Spotting

Description:

I love how the colors of the wings sparkle and change depending on how the sun's rays are striking them.

Habitat:

Seen on the hills behind the town of Sungaipenuh, near the Kerinci Seblat National Park, Sumatra, Indonesia.

Notes:

I'm leaning towards Neurothemis fluctuans, but I'm having a hard time telling apart the different Neurothemis sp. online. Any help?

That looks like Neurothemis terminata to me. I think the shape of the outer edge of the hind wing markings is the pointer, though they can be tricky little devils. N. fluctuans has a more curved edge on the hind wing markings.

Lol and then they might not be right either. Good luck narrowing it down.

Is it the same as this spotting? The markings look similar. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/174...
