Lestes praemorsus decipiens (Crenulated Spreadwing)

found in Cambodiafound in SingaporeAn uncommon damselfly that we found, thanks to our helpful local friend, at the edge of the golf course beside the MacRitchie Reservoir in Singapore’s Central Catchment NR.

There seem to be some references to this being Platylestes praemorsus rather than Lestes praemorsus but my book says Lestes, so Lestes it is. We suspect it is subspecies decipiens only because of location.
