Indothemis limbata is a rare and local species. It is normally found at open pond with good vegetation. I spotted I. limbata on a few accassions at open ponds, and whenever it was spotted the number was always small (one or two individuals). Indothemis limbata is always confused with Trithemis festiva. However, I. limbata is lack of orange streaks at abdomen and its wing tips are dark.
