Asian Pintail Acisoma panorpoides

The body shape of Asian Pintail is very unique and differs from other dragonfly species. Its body is small and spindle-like, with the abdomen which is significantly narrowed at the last few segments. The adult male is blue and black while the adult female is mainly pale green and black.
