Fiery Clearwing
Commophila aeneana

Southern Emerald Damselfly

Southern Emerald Damselfly

Picked up Matt and headed for the Isle of Sheppey in the hope of better views of the Dainty Damselflies we had both seen previously but they never appeared in 2.5hrs. However I did have the biggest result...a guy there netted a clearwing sp. and asked me to ID it and it was a blooming FIERY CLEARWING!!! Matt was totally unimpressed by the beast of a moth! Also managed to find a single Commophila aeneana which is a cracker too!

We then headed for Cliffe Pools RSPB and have four Southern Emerald Damselflies.
