Dragonflies and Damselflies 

The images in this sub-section are split into two obvious further sub-sections, indicated below. From there they are organised by Common Name with the Family Name (Genus) taking precedence e.g. Common Darter would be listed under Darter, not Common; this is followed by the Scientific Name. 
 
To enlarge a thumbnail left click on an image when the pointed finger appears (or double-tap on Touchscreen). This will also access a slideshow and further information in most instances. 
More Information 
The most useful reference tool is Dragonflies of Britain and Europe by Dijkstra and Lewington. 
The FSC have a handy, weatherproof reference guide for the Dragonflies and Damselflies of Britain. 
The Atlas of Dragonflies in Britain and Ireland (Cham, Nelson et al) is, as you would expect, very comprehensive. 
 
www.dragonflyprime.co.uk (Europe and The Gambia) is a useful website, as is 
http://www.naturespot.org.uk (Leics/Rutland based)
