Description

Aptly named! An older book also lists it as Black-winged Damselfly, but I like Ebony Jewelwing much better.

BugGuide info

Here's the female : it doesn't have the iridescence, but it has its own beauty -- dark brown wings just translucent enough to give a moire pattern, and white spots at the tips of them.
