Dragonflies | Namibia
Introduction: The first recorded specimens of Hamon's Sprite (Pseudagrion hamoni) are attributed to Jacques Hamon, a French entomologist, at Yabasso, Burkino Faso in June 1953. Sections of rivers appear to be the favoured Namibian habitat for this species, although a perennial spring, a degraded pool and a sand pit have also been home to Hamon's Sprite.
Distribution: Many sighting are restricted along the Kavango River and the Kunene River Valley.
Colouration: Males are very dark in appearance. Reddish-brown eyes and thorax.
Breeding: Females produce eggs during their entire adult lifespan.
Flight season: July to March less for the months of September and January.
Conservation: Not threatened.
