Definitely not S. depressiusculum

The yellow colouration may be right for a female S. depressiusculum but the markings on the side of the abdomen would be black arrow-head spots in each segment, not complete lines. See this post.

This character has black pterostigmas, not the light pterostigmas of S. depressiusculum

Sympetrum species have only ~8 cells between the wing root and wing node. This has at least 15 that I can count on a large image, indicating an Orthetrum species.
