Sympecma fusca
(Vander Linden, 1820)
Description
Although related to the Lestes 'spreadwing' damselflies, Sympecma rest with there wings alongside their bodies and do not have the matallic emerald green sheen that is characteristic of the Lestes. Sympecma have pale brown pterostigma on both forewing and hindwing and the pterostigma are nearer the wing tip on the forewing which means that both pterostigma can be seen - they do not overlap as in other damselflies. In the field this is easily seen and distinguishes Sympecma from all other damselflies. S. fusca is a nondescript damselfly that blends in with the dried grass stalks in which it overwinters but it is distinct from all other European damselflies except S. paedisca, so in most of its range there are no problems with identification.

Akkaya göleti civarında odonatları çalışmıştık,
Çalışmamız sırasında bu türe ait sadece bir örnek görebilmiştik,
bugünlerde çok fazlalar sanırım uygun zamanı bulamamışız.
sanırım dişiyi yumurta bırakırken yakaladım ama hiç net bir çalışma elde edemedim.

Hello Mehmet,
This is definitively "another way to see a Damselfly" excellent focus, light level is high, but interestingly artistic. TFS

Ya Muhammad,

It is a piece of art, you did well and what I feel is the a bit more contrast can bring more detail of this insect, rest is OK..
TFS, regards.
