Small Red Damselfly (Ceriagrion tenellum)

Small Red Damselfly (Ceriagrion tenellum)

One of the smallest damselflies in Britain and restricted to Southern England and Wales, the Small Red Damslefly can be distinguished from the similar Large Red Damselfly, as it has red legs and wing spot (pterostigmata) instead of black. A weak flyer, the Small Red Damselfly will only fly in warm, still weather.
