Emerald / Smeraldo

{ +1 in comments }

 

One of the largest damselflies, the Emerald Damselfly has a metallic emerald green color and usually rests with its wings partially open on reeds in pond-side banks.

 

Mature males have blue eyes and a powder blue color (pruinescence) on the prothorax and on segments 1-2 and 9-10 of the abdomen. The female (as you can see below) is thicker bodied than the male with no blue pruinescence.
