– A rare and very localized in but abundant where it breeds. Interesting to note that young male individuals have the pterostigmae white like the females whereas mature males have them red.

J’avais déjà présenté les femelles récemment, mais vous en verrez d’autres plus tard avec une surprise pour clore sur l’espèce! On peut noter ici que les plus jeunes mâles ont les ptérostigmas blancs comme les dames alors que les individus matures les ont rouges!
