Habitat - Leafy Shady Pond

One of the unique habitat for Odonata in Bangi Forest Reserve is leafy swampy shady pond (see below pictures). I have seen flying adults of Copera vittata, Podolestes orientalis, Agrionoptera sexlineata, Tyriobapta torrida and Neurothemis fluctuans hanging around the pond. Many larvae of Gynacantha basiguttata, Agrionoptera sexlineata and Copera vittata also have been collected from the pond.
