Scientific Name: Pseudagrion rubriceps
Common Name: Orange-faced Sprite
According to the book of dragonflies by Mr. Tang, this very rare damselfly has been found only at two locations in Singapore. These sightings were at Toa Payoh Town Park, and at the Central Catchment Nature Reserve.
My sighting of this species were at a very remote location at the western part of Singapore. The place has a small running stream surrounded by short and weedy vegetation.
The male has a striking bright orange face with olive green on the dorsum. It has beautiful light blue on the sides of the synthorax and blue markings on segment 10.
It is sad that this species can no longer be found at Toa Payoh Town Park, but elsewhere in Singapore, it can still be found.
