Scientific Name: Trithemis festiva
Common Name: Indigo Dropwing
Trithemis festiva is a very attractive dragonfly which inhabits fast flowing streams through open grasslands.
Male has dark blue synthorax and bluish abdomen with orange streaks. There is a brownish patch at the hindwing base. Superficially, male looks like Indothemis limbata, but lacks dark wing tips. Female is brownish yellow with dark markings on the thorax. Females are often found inlands, tree tops and therefore rarely seen.
