HabitatEdit

It inhabits ponds and dykes, and occasionally slow-moving rivers.

IdentificationEdit

Females occur in many colour forms, but all have yellow bands around the abdominal segments. They can easily be confused with Small red damselflies.

BehaviourEdit

One of the most common damselflies, the Large Red Damselfly is often the first damselfly to emerge, usually in April or May. They inhabit a variety of waters, and on a summer day the dash of red perfectly complements the blue of Azure and Common Blue Damselflies.
