Pygmy Damselfly

Common name for a species of small damselfly, with the scientific designation Agriocnemis pygmaea. Full grown adults are mostly pale green below and black above, with some light blue colouring on the flanks and on the top sides of the body. The top half of its eyes are brownish-black whereas the bottom half is yellowish-green. The wings are transparent with dark veining. The female has several forms, according to the different stages of growth. Pygmy Damselflies are rather common and widely distributed throughout Thailand, especially around paddy fields in lowland areas. In Thai, it is known as malaeng poh khem krae (แมลงปอเข็มแคระ), a literal translation of the English common name.
