Tramea stenoloba (Narrow-lobed Glider)

Tramea stenoloba (Narrow-lobed Glider) is known from Indonesia and much of Australia, where there have been many scattered records from Western Australia, Northern Territory (some of which are from far inland, near the centre of the continent) and Queensland.

All pictures below are of the same single individual that we encountered at Yugarapul Park in Brisbane on our 2019 southern Queensland excursion. We were fortunate that this ndividual kept returning to one particular perch.

Id notes
