Remarks. One of the males was holding a te­ rritory in a small clearing. It consisted of a re­ cently fallen tree with a twirled stem, which held about twenty phytotelmata with varying water content over almost its whole length. Some leaf detritus and mosquito larvae were observed in some of these water bodies, but no larvae of Microstigma Rambur  or of any other Zygoptera was detected (but see below under Triacanthagyna dentata  and Libellula herculea  ).
