ID comment

The wide yellowish abdomen with large brighter yellow cusps, the lack of spots at the wing nodes and the presence of antehumeral stripes point to the Broad Bodied Chaser. This is a female.

Please look again

Colin, please look at this again. It is a Broad Bodied Chaser and at present it is being recorded incorrectly for NBN records. Thanks Chris.
