I'm agreeing with you without hesitation as you know these way better than I do. I just thought the overall reddish brown colouration could only point to 1 species, thanks for clearing this up.
Could you tell me if the other one I posted which was large red is male or female and what makes it so?
Hi Cathal, the other posting is a female Large Red Damselfly. The enlarged tip to the abdomen with a spine underneath is the main clue. Also the yellowish and black segmental bands make this a female.
In regards to this posting the brown hue is because I think it is immature but I can see green in it especially towards the tail. It also lacks the antehumeral stripe of the Large Red.
