Atlas of the European Dragonflies and Damselflies

The thorax and abdomen of the Green-Eyed Hawker are essentially brown, but unlike the Brown Hawker, its wings are translucent. Aeshna isoceles has quite a patchy distribution; it occurs throughout Central and Southern Europe but seldom in large numbers. It's virtually absent from Iberia, Scandinavia and the British Isles. It's a smallish Hawker whose main distinguishing features are the yellow triangular mark on S2 which gives the species its scientific name, and its bright-green eyes which give it its common name.
