Species Name: Ceriagrion cerinorubellum
Compared to the species in my previous post Ceriagrion cerinorubellum is widespread in tropical Asia but is no less beautiful, with its bluish green head and orange base and tip of the abdomen it is quite distinctive and cannot be mistaken for other species. The female is similarly coloured but darker. In India it is commonly known as the Orange-tailed Marsh Dart.
I have frequently found it in drains, ponds, and open swamps and sometimes in gardens near town.
