The male can appear predominantly blue in flight due to their blue flanked abdomen. At rest males are clearly brown, green and blue. The green tends towards the yellow end of the spectrum. There are two broad stripes on the upper brown surface of the thorax. There is a large green triangle on the upper surface of the second abdominal segment. It is the only British resident Aeshna species that has undivided blue stripes on abdominal segments nine and ten.
