Epallage fatime - female

This spectacular damselfly is the size of a dragonfly and acts just like that.

It's a rare species with localized populations, which indirectly increases its vulnerability. Only found a few places in Southern Europe and Middle East.
Conservation measures proposed: Inclusion of Epallage fatime in the World List of Rare and Endangered Species

This is beautiful, Torben. Its abdomen seems much thicker than most dragons I have seen.
