Coeliccia ambigua

In the same paper in which Asahina described the two forms of Indocnemis orang, he also described a new species of Coeliccia, C. ambigua. In the blog of Sebastien Delonglee you can read a discussion on the ambiguity of the genus. Is it Coeliccia or Indocnemis? No need to repeat that discussion here. Suffice it to say that I ran into this lovely damselfly in August at Tay Thien, Tam Dao National Park, rather deep inside the forest at an altitude of about 300 m asl. It was a darkish day, and I failed to make proper photos, I am sorry. But for the time being, this will have to do, as I saw it only once.
