Coenagrionidae - Agriocnemis nana

Agriocnemis nana is one of the smallest odonates in the world (the length of the hindwing is 9 mm). It is less common compared to another small damselfly Agriocnemis femina. I was so lucky to spot some male and female of A. nana hanging around at an open grassy pond in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Bangi campus.
