Went to AWCs Mornington camp in the Kimbereleys, mainly to do the annual finch census. Managed to shoot afew dragonflies and damselflies around Annie Creek while there including a few new species.
see recent discussions on melanopsis/bipunctata/haematodes.
Wow, great photos and a nice selection of species.
In the guide section there is a good image of a scarlet percher, showing forewing clearly it has 8 antinodal crossveins.
It looks like the previous post has dropped a couple of paragraphs. The point I was getting to was it is either Diplacodes or R. lieftincki.
I can't see the dark spot above the metastigma. I see 10 or 11 antinodal crossveins on this specimen, on another image of the scarlet percher posted here I count 7 or 8 antinodal crossveins. All on the forewing. Conclusion is R. lieftincki.??
Ok following the Key starting on p 324 I get to:
Hindwing > or < 30mm ?
If I follow >30mm I get 29b, (> 9 antinodal crossveins) and the species is Rhodothemis lieftincki (part)
If I follow s showing 7 or 8 antinodal crossveins.
So that points towards R. lieftincki ??
