Atlas of the European Dragonflies and Damselflies

The Common Bluet is the commonest and most widespread damselfly in Europe; its range stretches from the North of Scandinavia to the South of the Mediterranean. It's a smallish black-and-blue (or black-and-greenish) damselfly with a stubby build. Enallagma cyathigerum's main distinguishing features include the very wide antehumeral stripes (a feature it shares with the Blue-Eye), the largely unmarked blue sides of the male's thorax, the mushroom-shaped mark on the male's S2, and the vulvar spine below the female's S8.
