Dragonflies | Namibia
Introduction: Because of the confusion in colours and markings of Dark Dropwings (Trithemis aequalis), little is known of this species other than they are found in flooded grass plains.
Colouration: There are a number of descriptions of colourations of this species but a rather reddish-violet pruinosity, bronzy-violet frons upper parts and a black, slender abdomen with yellow steaks appear to be the most popular.
Breeding: Females oviposit in fresh water.
Flight season: September and November.
Conservation: Data deficient.
A luxury camp on the banks of the Kunene River close to Epupa Falls and Himba settlements
Set high on the hill above the settlement of Epupam offers good views of the Kunene River and surrounding area.
A comfortable tented camp close to the Epupa falls, the big swimming pool is a welcome relief from this area's usual heat.
