Not as easy to identify as the Brown Hawker, especially as it was a fair way up a tree...
No interactions present.
The undivided abdominal stripes on S9 and S10 was something I didn't know about. The worst bit is that I used your website to ID it! ;-)
Sorry, old chap...
The easiest rule is that if those antehumeral stripes are wide, 99% sure it's a Southern Hawker, then just check on those abdominal stripes.
If it had been a mature specimen ID would have been far easier.

In the defence of my website, it is quite clear on the ID guides.
If my humour was over the top, I sincerely apologise. I wouldn't dream of offending you.
No offence taken at all, I'm getting to know your humour slowly. No apology needed. Regards Chris.
