Swamp Skimmer

Swamp Skimmers (Orthemis cultriformis) are widespread from Costa Rica to Argentina. The species is reported from streams and rivers, temporary pools and marshes in the forest (Guillion)—exactly the habitat we found this one. We encountered it at Costa Rica's La Selva Tropical Research Station at a dragonfly-laden and overgrown forest pond on 15 July 2017.
