Looking for an identification guide to dragonflies and damselflies?

The dragonflies identification chart covers 16 damselfly species and 28 dragonfly species. Separate images are given for the male and female forms of most species.

Sometimes called the 'birdwatcher's insect', dragonflies and damselflies are large and charismatic insects with a distinctive flight pattern. Dragonfly and damselfly identification in the field can initially be daunting, but with practice most British species can be identified when in flight. 

Accompanying text provides extra background information on life-cycle and feeding.

This is just one of the FSC's range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it splashproof and robust for use outdoors. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups.
