EN[ˈdæmzəlflaɪ]
WDamselfly
  • Damselflies are insects of suborder Zygoptera in the order Odonata.
  • All damselflies are predatory; both nymphs and adults eat other insects. The nymphs are aquatic, with different species living in a variety of freshwater habitats including acid bogs, ponds, lakes and rivers.
  • Some species of damselfly have elaborate courtship behaviours. Many species are sexually dimorphic, the males often being more brightly coloured than the females. Like dragonflies, they reproduce using indirect insemination and delayed fertilisation.
