Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Banded Darter is a European species of dragonfly of the family Libellulidae.Males of the Banded Darter, like most members of the genus, have a red abdomen. The species' primary distinguishing feature however is the presence of broad black bands across the outer section of each wing. It is similar in size to the Black Darter (35-40mm), sharing the broad hindwings and black legs.The weak, low, fluttering flight is not unlike that of a Black Darter, but it perches frequently on the tips of rush stems rather than on the ground. It is a surprisingly inconspicuous species.show more
