Lestes falcifer Sjostedt, 1918 

Material (4♂). 2 ♂, Siapa 2GoogleMaps  ; 2 ♂, Base CampGoogleMaps 

Remarks. All specimens were caught in the forest, away from water. At Siapa 2 L. falcifer  was flying together with Gynacantha gracilis  (Bur· meister) in a hollow among vines and bushes. The presence of these species, incl. oviposition of the latter, indicate that the hollow will be filled with water during rain season. Perissolestes sp.

Remarks. One male was observed at Unturan. It was hanging from a twig in a dark corner of the creek, but could not be secured.
