Family : Libellulidae
Common name : Grenadier
Status : Common
Location : Venus Drive, Jurong Woods, Chestnut Avenue Nature Trail, Singapore Botanical Gardens, West Coast Park, Rifle Range Nature Trail, Wild Wild West, etc.
This is classified as an uncommon species but I have seen the males on many occasions such as Venus Drive, West Coast Park, Rifle Rifle Range Nature Trail, Jurong Woods, etc. They are usually found in sluggish streams & shady drains. A common species in my opinion.
The male has a a prominent red abdomen with black markings.
The female is thicker and the colour in its abdomen is duller. The males can be commonly found but not the female. A very cooperative species which usually perches around the same spot for a prolonged period.
