With another visit to Huu Lien, I had to try to get additional pictures of both Ceriagrion nipponicum and the possible new Paracercion species. Both were around at the reservoir. I could collect two more males Paracercion and C. nipponicum posed well enough. It was fun watching them battle with C. auranticum, showing the striking color difference.
|Ceriagrion nipponicum, male|
|Another male, equally vivid|
|Let's throw in Ceriagrion auranticum for comparison, a male|
|And Ceriagrion nipponicum female, note the relative short abdomen (wings reaching 3/4 of S6)|
|The enigma Paracercion, all characteristics proved consistent|
