|Genus/Species||Pseudagrion microcephalum (Rambur, 1842)|
|Common from northern NSW around the coast to the Kimberley; uncommon to rare down into eastern Victoria.|
|Habitat||Can be found from lakes to slow-flowing water.|
|Description||These are small damselflies (about 35mm long) and mature males, are marked bright blue and black.|
|These feature post-occular blue markings that are triangular in shape and joined by a narrow line.
They are somewhat similar to Ischnura heterosticta, which has only post-occular spots, and Austroagrion watsoni et al, which have only a post-occular line.|
Coenagrion lyelli has similar markings behind the eyes but most of the abdominal segments are blue (or pale) along the top.
|Behaviour||These perch horizontally close to the water surface, including on surface vegetation.|
