Field Guide for British dragonflies (Odonata)

Mesothorax –

Large energy heart field

 

At the attachment

Swollen segments

 

A yellow sun, a black sun

Between the wings yellow

 

The length of imago

Denticulated at basal half

Dorsal longitude

 

A nymph’s inconvenience

A collection of pet insects

 

Generally speaking, among the tentacles

Specimen –

 

Fossilized species

The contents are granular

 

Changes of skin occur

The larvae, the pupae, lacunae

Thoracic atmosphere

 

The insect is exhausted

Weak and feeble light, wings glissant
