Unfortunately I have only the one picture of this dragonfly. I believe it emerged from my garden pond and is drying its wings and I found what I believe was the nymph carcase on a nearby stem.
The approximate length is 43mm, and as its name suggests it has a broad abdomen which is flattened. Adult males have a sky blue abdomen while immature males and females are brown. The nymph lives buried in the silt at the bottom of ponds or canals.
