This is a large damselfly species usually found at moderate to swift flowing clear forest streams or near waterfalls. It likes to perch on stones or fallen logs in streams. Such habitat, unfortunately, can no longer be found in Singapore and therefore, this species is believed to be extinct nationally. Accordingly to Dragonflies of Singapore book, it was last recorded in a stream at Upper Macritchie in 1970.
This damselfly is considered a common species in Malaysia. Both the male & female were photographed at a stream near the entrance of Mt. Ophir Recreation Forest.
