Another Tramea transmarina euryale

Saturday 7 September was supposed to become a clear day, so I headed to Ba Vi. And although I could for at least part of the day see that the plains in the distance were sunny, the mountain stayed in cloud and mist all day. Around 4.30 in the afternoon the resort cleared and while having a coffee I noticed a Tramea in the top of a tree. Although I could not verify it in hand, the wing pattern clearly indicates T. transmarina euryale. It is of course a female. This would be the second record for Vietnam, but given the fact that this is the second weekend in a row and at a completely different location, it likely has just been overlooked.
