Archibasis rebeccae

Archibasis rebeccae was described from Batu Malim, Pahang. It is no longer endemic to Peninsular Malaysia as it has been recorded in Singapore (Ngaim 2009). Archibasis rebeccae is definitely not a common damselfly species though I have seen it from the north to the south of Peninsular Malaysia. Surprisingly, it is quite comfortable living in oil palm plantation.
