Black-tipped Damsel Fly

Polythore terminata


There doesn't seem to be a common name, so I took it upon myself to name it :-) Medium sized damsel fly with clear wings tipped with black


This damselfly was seen around the edges of a slow moving stream in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador.


Very pretty damselfly.
