Andagoya Dragonlet

These photographs are of Andagoya Dragonlets. According to my notes, the first photo, a male, was taken at the Laguna del Lagarto Lodge on 14 July 2017. The second is a female, taken the same day a few miles from the lodge. The species ranges from Ecuador, Colombia, to Costa Rica. The IUC Red List states populations are not fragmented, thus, presumably, this dragonlet is also found in Panama. The name Andagoya refers to a Colombian town, which was named after a Spanish conquistador.  The preferred habitat for the species is marshes, ponds, and streams (usually within forests). The larvae are unknown.
