Description

Vestalis gracilis (Clear-winged Flashwing) is a damselfly species in family Calopterygidae. It is normally found in sluggish wooded streams up to 1000 m above sea level including those in agricultural land (Orr, 2005; Dow, 2009). This species is widespread in continental Asia. In Peninsular Malaysia, however, its distribution is more towards the north (Orr, 2005). It is absent from Borneo Island. Clear-winged Flashwing is easily distinguished from other Vestalis species by the thoracic marking. Its thorax is marked on side with discrete light green patches, but other Vestalis species lack this marking.
