Classification

 Kingdom: Animalia
 Phylum: Arthropoda
 Subphylum: Hexapoda
 Class: Insecta
 Order: Odonata
 Family: Coenagrionidae

Blue Fronted DancerThere are over 1,100 species in this family. They are found around the world. Pond damsels are 1-2 inches in length.

Pond damsels can be red, green, blue, purple, orange, or yellow. Males are usually more brightly colored than females. Pond damsels have narrow, transparent wings that they hold vertically over their body when they are at rest.

The nymphs in this family are found on submerged vegetation and rocks. They have three leaf-like gills on the end of their abdomens and are usually found in environments with still water.

Pond damsels are also known as narrow-winged damselflies.
