Dragonflies of Penrose State Forest

9 February 2014

Spent the day in Penrose State Forest in southern NSW, still primarily looking for the Giant Dragonfly Petalura gigantea. They are known for the area but I failed to see any. It was a hot day, close to 40°C, and I spent the afternoon relaxing by a creek. These sorts of temperatures are too hot for many dragonflies to be very active and I saw several darners just hanging around in the shade, including some males of the large dragonfly Austrophlebia costalis that I was able to get fairly close to for the first time. I ended up recording 18 species for the day (plus two more with photos not good enough for ID) — not bad for one site.

  1. Adversaeschna brevistyla
  2. Archaeosynthemis orientalis
  3. Austroaeschna subapicalis
  4. Austroagrion watsoni
  5. Austroargiolestes icteromelas
  6. Austrogomphus guerini
  7. Austrogomphus ochraceus
  8. Austrolestes analis
  9. Austrophlebia costalis
  10. Eusynthemis tillyardi
  11. Griseargiolestes griseus
  12. Hemianax papuensis
  13. Hemicordulia australiae
  14. Hemicordulia tau
  15. Orthetrum caledonicum
  16. Synlestes weyersii
  17. Synthemis eustalacta
  18. Telephlebia godeffroyi
