[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Water streams within the rain forest constitute beautiful habitats by their own and offer a huge number of different animal species including insects for observation and photography. In most cases, you can do your observations without any disturbance by other people.

This picture shows the dragonfly:
- Libellago celebensis
- subspecies orientalis van Tol, 2007
- family: Chlorocyphidae

Only recently, the subspecies orientalis has been described. Its occurrence is restricted to Southeast-Sulawesi.

A forest stream near Konawendepiha which can be reached first following a rivulet and narrow forest paths.
