Agrionoptera insignis (Grenadier)

Seen in SingaporeA colourful, handsomely marked dragonfly that our book says is uncommon in Singapore, though we seemed to find quite a few of them, notably in the Singapore Botanic Gardens and in Kent Ridge Park. Confusion is supposedly possible with the also red Lathrecista asiatica (Scarlet Grenadier) but I don’t think they’re that similar.

I think this also occurs in Cambodia though we didn’t see an example, there.
