CSC_0292 (6)_1
Ischnura senegalensis

This is a highly common species but not in intact forest areas. Spotted in a vegetated area along the shoreline of a lake  in the middle of coconut and mango plantation. The still and slow flowing water ecosystem was brownish in color and residents nearby propagate oyster on this lake. Thus, this species tolerates disturbances in its ecosystem.

Location: Samal Island/ Suborder: Zygoptera/ Family: Coenagrionidea/ Species: Ischnura senegalensis
