Prodasineura laidlawii

Peninsular Malaysia has four blue Prodasineura species namely P. interrupta, P. notostigma, P. collaris and P. laidlawii. All these Prodasineura species are readily distinguishable by their blue marking on synthorax, head and tail. These Prodasineura species are normally found at forest stream, swamp and even stream at oil palm plantation. Showing below is P. laidlawii which has less intensive blue marking on thorax compared to the other Prodasineura species.
