Small Red Dam, f. melanogastrum?

Observation - Small Red Dam, f. melanogastrum? - UK and Ireland. Description: At least, I think this is the so-called female form melanogastrum of the Small Red Damselfly. I snagged it at Thursley Common yesterday and was quite confused to begin with - never seen one this colour before - but options were fairly limited.
