Lesser Stream Cruiser (Macromia cydippe) Laidlaw, Male & Female

Family: Corduliidae (Emeralds)
Scientific Name: Macromia cydippe
Common Name: Lesser Stream Cruiser

Macromia cydippe is very rare in Singapore. My sighting of this species is mainly concentrated at the Central Catchment Nature Reserve.

Here is the male and female taken at the MacRitchie Reservoir.

Female lesser stream cruiser. Notice the prominent white spot at the base of 7th segment of the abdomen. Female is slightly more robust than the male.
