DAMSELFLIES (Zygoptera)



The Damselfly (Suborder Zygoptera) is an insect in the Order Odonata. Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults
can be differentiated by the fact that the wings of most damselflies are held along, and parallel to, the body when at rest.
Furthermore, the hindwing of the damselfly is essentially similar to the forewing, while the hindwing of the dragonfly
broadens near the base, caudal to the connecting point at the body. Damselflies are also usually smaller,
weaker fliers than dragonflies, and their eyes are separated.
