Description

Gomphidictinus perakensis is a species of dragonfly in the family Gomphidae. Its hindwing may measure up 52 mm for male. The appearance is quite similar to genus Gomphidia but larger and finer with more intricate pale yellow marking on its body. The female has a larger size than male with more extensive pale marking and a short and robust abdomen. G. perakensis is commonly found in clear and swift streams with the altitude up to 600 m above sea level where males like to perch on vegetation over the water while females fly rapidly along stream banks. Its larva occurs deep in accumulated leaf litter. This dragonfly is widespread in Peninsular Malaysia, Thailand and Laos (Orr, 2005).
