Description

Ceriagrion cerinorubellum is locally known as Ornate Coraltail. It is one of commonest species and most colorful members of its family (Coenagrionidae). Its hindwing may measure up to 17mm. Both sexes have similar coloration (Orr, 2005). This damselfly is commonly found in a wide variety of standing water habitats from drains in town and cities to marshes and swamp forest as well as landward margins of mangroves swamp (Dow, 2010). It prefers to breed in ponds and drains in disturbed open areas, urban gardens and swamp forest edges. It is widespread in tropical Asia (Orr, 2005), ranging from Pakistan to southern Vietnam and south to Java (Dow, 2010).
