Pied Spot Dragonfly – Hemistigma Albipunctum

This medium to small dragonfly gets the name Hemistigma from hemi- half and stigma- tatoo referring to the half inked pterostigma (the coloured spot in the wing). Albipuncta refers to albi- half and puncta- spot. They favour well vegetated wetlands and swampy environments.
