Scientific Name: Copera marginipes
Common Name: Yellow Featherlegs
Yellow Featherlegs is a fairly common damselfly which inhibit small streams, sluggish and often muddy channels, swamps around forest edges. In Singapore, I have encounter this species at Chestnut forest, and the forest around Mandai and Kranji.
This species is easily recognizable. Male has dark thorax with yellow streaks. The legs are yellow and flatten and the last two abdominal segments including the anal appendages are white.
Female has duller white or yellow streaks and abdomens are black.
Both immature male and female have white bodies and they are called – the “Ghost Form”.
