Southern Damselfly female?

Observation - Southern Damselfly female? - UK and Ireland. Description: Recently at Crockford Stream in the New Forest, there were plenty of Small Red Damselfly and Southern Damselfly males, I also found 2 females.

Recently at Crockford Stream in the New Forest, there were plenty of Small Red Damselfly and Southern Damselfly males, I also found 2 females.

Smallshire and Swash says it's difficult to tell the female Southern from the melanogastrum form of Small Red. They say to look for presence of the males to help distinguish. Great!

I think this is a female Southern and my other post, a female Small Red.
