|"Brachytron is a monophyletic genus of European dragonfly of the family Aeshnidae containing the Hairy Dragonfly (Brachytron pratense), also known as the Hairy Hawker.|
The Hairy Dragonfly is named for its hairy thorax, distinguishing it from other hawkers. It has a long, narrow pterostigma (the coloured coloured, chitinous patch on the outer region of each wing).
The antehumeral stripes are usually thin and green. The Hairy Dragonfly has coupled, oval-shaped markings on its abdomen, blue on males and yellow on females. It is smaller than other species in the genus Aeshna. It is the United Kingdom's smallest hawker." [source - Wikipedia]
