Singapore Stamp: Ceriagrion cerinorubellum

Ceriagrion cerinorubellum is a species of damselfly in the family Coenagrionidae. It's commonly known as the bi-coloured damsel. They can be found in many parks particularly around ponds, drains, canal, open streams, etc. Bi-coloured damsels rest on dry twigs and vegetation over water. They're relatively big damselflies in size. They attack and feed on other species of smaller damselflies. Its bluish green head and orange base and the tip of the abdomen is quite distinctive and cannot be mistaken for other species. The female has a similar appearance but has slightly a little darker marking.

This species can be found in Asia: Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Malaysia, Philippines, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam.
