Platycnemididae - Copera vittata

Platycnemididae- Copera vittata (Selys, 1863)

I had not visited to Bangi Forest Reserve (BFR) for some time...... I kind of miss the peaceful place, and I crept into the streamlet in the BFR today with my camera. I managed to snap some shots of this tandam pair of Copera vittata before the heavy downpour. Copera vittata is a variable species. I have seen red-leg and yellow-leg of C. vittata in Peninsular Malaysia. Copera vittata of BFR is the yellow form.
