By the way, based on the likeness of the appendages of L. praecellens and L. dorothea one may ask whether these are truly different species. There thoracic markings are also rather similar, if it weren't for the female.
|Lester dorothea male. Note the lack of pruinosity on S9.|
|Male and female of L. dorothea|
|The female, showing the extensive dark markings on the thorax, unlike L. praemorsus|
|Another male showing the limited pruinosity on the abdomen tip|
|A Lestes praemorsus male for comparison. Smaller and with pruinosity on S9.|
