Small Red Damselfly - Brian WalkerSmall Red Damselfly Ceriagrion tenellum is one our smallest damselflies and a very attractive insect.  As with many damselflies the female occurs in several colour forms.  The picture is of the most common form.  It occurs in boggy areas on heathland in south and west England and Wales.  It is significantly smaller than the much more widespread Large Red Damselfly, the only other red damselfly found in the UK.
