A mating pair of "Deceptive" Coraltails- Ceriagrion fallax pendleburyi ♂♀

An uncommon damselfly, usually found around swampy areas at higher elevations.

 

Note the heart-shaped mating wheel. The female (bottom) is seen receiving sperm from the secondary genitalia of the male (top). Fertilization of eggs only takes place when the eggs are being laid.
