Identification history

Dragonfly Austroagrion watsoni 5 Sep 2017 KerriLee

Author's notes

This species is often greenish-blue rather than pure blue. The features I find most helpful in distinguishing Austroagrion watsoni from the other ten species in this family is: 1) the pale stripe behind the eyes (not spots, as for Ischnura heterosticta); 2) the small dark marks at the base of term 8-9 in the male, which are otherwise blue.
