Australian Duskhawker - Austrogynacantha heterogena
This page contains information and pictures about Australian Duskhawker Dragonflies that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.
- Female, body length 60mm
- Australian Duskhawker is crepuscular and vagrant. The larvae inhabit still
- The dragonfly is bright green in colour with dark brown
- We found this dragonfly only once. It was in the Yugarapul Park on Jan
2011. The dragonfly was hiding among tall grasses, flied to a few meters
away when we walked pass the field. The dragonfly was bright green in colour
on flight and with a distinctive flying pattern. We then knew this is a
dragonfly we never saw. We followed it and took those pictures.
