Agriomorpha fusca

There is a very common forest damselfly that you can encounter under almost any weather conditions, apart from heavy rain, around seeps and small trickles in forested areas, where they sit inside patches of vegetation, or mutter about in slow flight. This is Agriomorpha fusca. But although common all through the summer season, I have not seen them since September 14. But the time has come to tidy up lose ends and this is one of them. It is not a colorful damsel, apart from the yellow snout. Indeed, it is a dark creature and the name 'fusca' is well chosen.
