A rather greenish looking dragonfly seen on Sussex woodland ride. Approx. 6cm length.
No interactions present.
Yellow stripe on legs is the easy give away.
any possibility that it might be Orthetrum?
No, not really; the eye colouration, relatively plain thorax side and those half-segment lines on the side of the abdomen are classic female Common Darter.
When did Sympetrum become Staurastrum? I only know Staurastrum as a planktonic desmid. Though it is permissible to have the same genus for a plant and an animal.
