Calopterygoidea

Male Papuan jewel Rhinocypha tincta, copyright Vincent Kalkman.


Belongs within: Zygoptera.

The Calopterygoidea are a group of damselflies characterised by wings with very numerous and dense antenodal crossveins (Petrulevičius & Nel 2004). In members of the family Calopterygidae, the wings commonly lack a pterostigma, and have relatively broad, non-petiolate bases.
