White-legged Damselfly Investigation

The White-legged Damselfly (Platycnemis pennipes) is a delicate little insect that can be found fluttering along lushly vegetated margins of rivers, streams, pools and lakes in southern England and Wales. At first glance they can be mistaken for other, more common, species of blue Damselflies, such as Azure Damselflies; as a result, it is likely that White-legged Damselfly are under-recorded. However, on closer inspection the species can be easily be identified by a number of features, the most prominent being its pale legs, which are broad and feathery in males.
