Amanipodagrion gilliesi (Amani flatwing)

Wikipedia Abstract

Amanipodagrion gilliesi is a species of damselfly. Its monotypic genus Amanipodagrion belongs in the subfamily Argiolestinae of the flatwing damselfly family (Megapodagrionidae). This species is commonly known as the Amani flatwing. It has a slender dark-coloured abdomen with a white tip, and males have a dark wing band. This insect is endemic to a 500 m (1,600 ft) stretch of stream in the Amani-Sigi Forest Reserve in the eastern Usambara Mountains in Tanzania. Because of its small area of occupation and the continuing destruction of the mountain forests in the area, the International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed the conservation status of the Amani flatwing as being "critically endangered".
