Author's notes

I am assuming this is one of the Diplacodes sp. but not sure which one. There have been numerous Orthetrum caledonicum along the track but this is the first time I have seen this species this year.

Nice find Steve! I've only ever seen this species up north, so I'm keen to go looking now. I've ID'ed it based on the dark mark at the base of the hindwing, the general narrowing of the abdomen at segment 4, and the plain (unmarked) sides of the synthorax. At least, these are the features highlighted in Theischinger & Hawkings's Field Guide.
