Oh yes, that's great with the pictures and names... thanks.
End of March hopefully :) Give a shout when you upload the last, but just in case here is the best view of the database I am using: http://efg.cs.umb.edu/efg2/search?displa...
Yes, as i have said, I really appreciate it. Hope you have finished building and are happy in your new home.And yes, that's a pretty good data base. Only problem is I am back home in India now, so probably not many more spottings from Costa Rica, though I still have a few photos to go upload.
I do follow you, but have been in the middle of moving and building a new home, so was not checking PN for awhile. I only try ID when I can find pretty good databases of the species in an area. Then it is the checking the characteristics. Not an expert, but at least you will have a few suggestions to work on and for others to comment yes or no. A start :)
yes, thanks. You are doing a fine job. It was bothering me that there was a whole bunch of damselflies and none of them had an ID. All the way through my spottings i have unidentified damselflies and dragonflies. It doesn't help that I live on the other side of the world and you are asleep in America when I am awake here and v.v.!
Well we narrowed it a bit. Thought you might like to see at least what I found to chose from. Working on the hard ones today. A good learning exercise. :)
thanks gatorfellows. Couldn't find any more photos that show the thorax more clearly. I'm sorry, but if you can't make an ID, I'm not going to attempt it!
Cannot see the thorax stripe well enough for an ID. The abdomen tip appears to be female. With dark top of thorax and brown eyes look at the possibilities Archilestes grandis and Lestes tenuatus. Prunosity with age occurs.
