I made the ID primarily as the coloured stripe below the antehumeral stripe is dark, as shown in Dijkstra. However, as the antehumeral stripe is broad and there could well be bi-coloured pterostigma, I am inclned to agree with you.
I have added an edit with 2 more photos which probably don't really help much!
I think that SImon may be getting mixed up with Western Willow Emerald Damselfly, Lestes viridis.
This is a female Small Emerald Damselfly/Small Spreadwing, Lestes virens virens. It is quite common for Lestes species to have pale bands either side of the dark pterostigma - and in some populations of L. virens, mainly in western Iberia, the pterostigma can closely resemble the bi-coloured pterostigma typical of L. barbarus (roughly half dark, half pale).
I stick with my original ID! I'm getting better with IDs but still find some very small details so hard to detect!
Could you have a look at these IDs? I would welcome your input. All featherlegs which seem to be very common down here this year.
Many thanks indeed.
One of the problems is that even when you know which small details you need to be looking at to confirm an ID, individual variation sometimes still leaves the ID ambiguous!
I've agreed with all your Featherleg IDs, although I wouldn't like to say that the ID of the female was beyond doubt.
