Scientific Name: Heliaeschna uninervulata
Common Name: Lesser Night Hawker
I was at Pulau Ubin in early June 2015 when I accidentally bumped into a pretty “large” Aeshnid-like dragonfly resting at the forested vegetation near to the main road. The time was about 4 plus in the afternoon and apparently this male individual was not very active then.
After a couple of shots, it becomes obvious to me that this is a male H. uninervulata (my third sighting of this species in Singapore). The unique features of this species is the single cross vein on the wings and the incision-shaped anal appendages (for males).
This species is very rare in Singapore and the sighting at Pulau Ubin could be a new record found at the location.
