Identification history

Dragonfly Austrolestes psyche 5 Sep 2017 KerriLee

Author's notes

Just a single male sighted. Two features distinguish this from the other 6 Austrolestes species we might see here: first, the humeral stripe does not cross the mesopleural suture [that is, the thin pale stripe on the front segment of the thorax does not extend across the adjacent groove]; second, the dorsal markings on the second abdominal segment ... it is dark (no pale centre stripe) and weakly hourglass shaped [i.e. constricted in the middle]
