A male and female of a potentially new species of damselfly in the genus Argia, shown in tandem at Iwana Samu. Four of the eight species of this genus found during this RAP are new to science. The new species photographed here breeds in forest swamps, and its adults perch on rocks, logs and twigs close to the water’s surface, and on leaves, twigs and on the ground along forest trails near swamps, usually on bare substrates in the sun.
