Red-veined Dropwing (Trithemis arteriosa)

The Red-veined dropwing (Trithemis arteriosa), is a species of dragonfly in the family Libellulidae.

Trithemis arteriosa is widespread and common in most of its range which includes most of Africa and extends to western Asia and southern Europe.

This dragonfly is found in and near a wide variety of slow-flowing and still-water habitats.

This was the most common dragonfly I encountered in Israel.

Juvenile Male
