Eastern Amberwing

Perithemis tenera


This is a small species with a brown thorax. There are two wide greenish stripes laterally and middorsally on the thorax. Males have orange or amber wings that usually develop a brown spot above the triangles. Females have variously shaped brown spots or stripes through the amber areas. Both sexes have red pterostigmata. The abdomen is narrowed basally, but thick thereafter and brown with a dark row of chevrons dorsally.
