Scientific Name: Heliogomphus kelantanensis
Common Name: Malayan Grappletail
According to the book “Dragonfly of Singapore””, H. kelantanensis has been recorded only four times in Singapore. In year 2011, I was extremely lucky to found one male species in the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. This is a very rare gomphid which inhibit clear forest streams in the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, and is endemic to P. Malaysia and Singapore.
This species has bluish-green eyes. The thorax is uniform olive green with some green markings on the dorsum. The male abdomen is black and the anal appendages is dark and short.
