Allow BugFinder to help you identify your particular Dragonfly or Dobsonfly through a series of easy-to-use drop-downs.

BUGFINDER DRAGONFLIES & DAMSELFLIES: What Kind of Dragonfly or Damselfly is It?...
Color 1:
Color 2:

BUGFINDER: DRAGONFLIES & DOBSONFLIES is our in-house search form that allows you to quickly peruse the Insect Identification database by selecting PRIMARY and SECONDARY colors of your Dragonfly or Dobsonfly and the STATE / PROVINCE you saw the insect in. This tool can sometimes be more useful than perusing our list pages manually. Remember that if only one color is present on your insect (for example 'BLACK'), select it for both PRIMARY and SECONDARY colors. Also note that the more accurate details you can offer the form above, the better your chances of finding a close (or exact) match of your Dragonfly or Dobsonfly will be. Unless your specimen is missing any of its legs, your Dragonfly or Dobsonfly will have six total legs.
