Western forktail (Ischnura perparva)

The western forktail (Ischnura perparva) is a widespread species of damselfly which lives near bogs, lakes, seeps, and other wetlands. It is somewhat similar in appearance to the Pacific forktail (Ischnura cervula), but males have two stripes instead of four dots atop their abdomens.
