For future reference the Southern Hawker male (which this is) has wide yellow stripes on top of the thorax and green abdominal spots except for the 3 segments nearest the tail which are blue. The spots of segments 9 and 10 are undivided and are effectively bars.

The Common Hawker has all blue spots along the entire abdomen and narrow thoracic stripes.
