ID confirmation

The male Azure can only really be confused with the Variable Damselfly; however the Azure has an unbroken antehumeral stripe and the black marking on abdominal segment 9 is indented.

On the Variable Damselfly the antehumeral stripe is generally divided by a black band forming the shape of an overall exclamation mark and the black mark on segment 9 is more of a square shape.
