- the dragonfly Common Redbolt (Rhodothemis rufa) is commonly found in
Singapore, particularly in weedy ponds, lagoons in lowland, and water channels.
The dragonfly is a valuable predator that eats mosquitoes, and other small
insects like flies, bees and ants. The Damselfly, Ornate Coraltail (Ceriagrion
cerinorubellum), also known as Bi-coloured Damsel, is the most common and
beautiful species of damselflies. It is easily found in many of Singapore's
parks particularly around ponds, drains, canal, open streams, and is relatively
big in size compared to other damselflies.
