Species name: Zyxomma obtusum
Mature males of this crepuscular species are entirely covered with white bloom which gives it a ghostly appearence when silently flitting over drains at dusk or early dawn.
A male in flight. See another male in flight here
I recently found some larvae living in a cement water tank, no doubt feeding on tadpoles of the four-lined tree frog and other aquatic life in the water.
A final instar nymph.
A nymph that has crawled out of the water and
ready to emerge.
The newly emerged imago beside its exuvia in the process of drying its wings.
It is a male (teneral) still lacking its full mature colour.
