Small Red-eyed Damselfly - Brian WalkerSmall Red-eyed Damselfly Erythromma viridulum was first seen in the UK in 1999 and has subsequently spread to occur widely across Southern England, becoming common at a number of sites.  This year there have been records from Cornwall and further north in Britain so it is still spreading.  Males can be distinguished from the similar Red-eyed Damselfly by more extensive blue at the end of the abdomen.
