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.


Spotted at Seven Devils Swamp. This place has to be a dragonflies paradise - there are open sloughs, slow moving water, flooded riparian woodlands and swampy wetlands with aquatic vegetation.
