Argia medullaris (Pond Damselfly sp.)


Argia is a genus of damselflies of the family Coenagrionidae and of the subfamily Argiinae. They are commonly known as dancers. Dancers are quite active and alert damselflies.
The bluer Argia species may be confused with Enallagma species.

This damselfly was identified by Cornelio Andrés Bota-Sierra, the Colombian dragonfly expert who I met during my stay at Montezuma Lodge in Tatamá National Park.
