Prodasineura notostigma

Only four blue Prodasineura species so far have been recorded in Peninsular Malaysia - P. interrupta, P. notostigma, P. collaris and P. laidlawii. These Prodasineura species have blue marking, but they are readily distinguished by the blue marking on their thorax and head. Showing in this entry is P. notostigma, which is normally found at swamp and forest stream. The head and thorax of P. notostigma have less blue marking compared to the other Prodasineura species. Apart from that, the tail of P. notostigma has no blue marking (total black colour).
