Identification of dragonfies can be difficult depending on the features captured in images. To assist with identifications images may need to include the dragonfly from several angles.The identification of this dragonfly has been made by Gunther Theisinger and are based mostly on the antehumeral strip and not the superior appendages as it can't really be seen from the top. Also the setal tufts on the sterna of the males cannot be seen. The overriding part of the key is the genitalia.
