Damselfly UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • A team of researchers have discovered a new species of damselfly at the Ponmudi hills in Thiruvananthapuram district of Kerala. 

  • The hills are a part of the Agasthyamalai landscape, at the southernmost tip of the Western Ghats. 

  • The Ponmudi hills are biodiversity-rich, and this is the third species of damselfly discovered from the region.

  • According to A. Vivek Chandran, a member of the research team, the new species, named Cliffside Bambootail (Phylloneura rupestris).

belongs to a group called bambootails, so named because of their long abdomen that resembles bamboo stalks.


  • Damselflies are graceful, slender insects belonging to the suborder Zygoptera within the order Odonata, sharing the order with their larger, more robust cousins, dragonflies. 


  • Slender bodies: Unlike dragonflies, damselflies have thin, needle-like abdomens, often metallically colored in shades of blue, green, or red.

  • Delicate wings: Most damselflies fold their wings together vertically along their bodies when at rest, unlike dragonflies who keep them spread out flat

  • Their wings are typically clear or have intricate patterns of veins.
