S. flaveolum

The yellow abdomen makes it a female - I've never seen one but they do turn up in Britain very occasionally.

Immature males are also yellow.

Darters of both sexes start off the same yellow colour. This one is a female though because of the shape of the appendages at the tip of the abdomen.
