Often the first species found each season, the Large Red Damselfly is another smaller Damselfly with mostly red colouration. Legs are black, eyes will change from yellow/orange through to red as individuals mature. Males are thinner in body than females and only have markings near the end of the tail, whereas females have clear markings all along their thicker bodies. Not to be confused with the slighter-bodied Small Red Damselfly which is identified by its red legs, and has not been recorded in Warwickshire. Large Reds are found at still and flowing waters, though have proved uncommon along the river in recent years.
