Guide to Dragonflies & Damselflies of Britain
Steve Brooks & Richard Askew
The dragonflies identification chart covers 16 damselfly species and 28 dragonfly species. Separate images are given for the male and female forms of most species.
Sometimes called the 'birdwatcher's insect', dragonflies and damselflies are large and charismatic insects with a distinctive flight pattern. Dragonfly and damselfly identification in the field can initially be daunting, but with practice most British species can be identified when in flight.
