Identification history

Dragonfly (Anisoptera) Diplacodes haematodes 28 Jan 2018 KerriLee

Author's notes

A mature male, posturing at a creek bed and apparently guarding his territory. Note the extensive yellow markings at the wing base. The other bright red species we often see in this area - Diplacodes bipunctata - has only a small dark yellow patch at the wing base. D.bipunctata also has more extensive black markings along the abdomen.
