The Rest of the Photos from Brazil, 2006

Last updated: November 19, 2006

All of the following photos were taken on a trip to Brazil in 2006. We visited the Pantanal, Chapada dos Guimarães and Emas National Park. Click on any image to obtain a larger version.

The images on this page are generally not of as high a quality as those on my Best Bird Photos page, and the quality of some is quite low, but they are mostly good enough to serve as identification shots.

Notes and identifications are thanks to Tim Manolis ( and his friend Dennis Paulson.

Tramea rustica

(Species of this genus in North America are called "saddlebags" because of the dark patches on the wing bases.) Dennis wrote "The Tramea is T. rustica, the member of that group with the longest appendages and the largest wing spots. It must be fairly rare or have a specialized habitat, as I've never seen it."

Diastatops pullata (Male)

Diastatops pullata (Female)

Perithemis electra

(North American species in this genus are called "amberwings").

Aeolagrion flammeum

Dennis wrote: "This looks like Aeolagrion flammeum, the only damselfly I know down there with that odd thoracic pattern and color. It has been common at several rain-forest locations that I've visited, from Peru to Venezuela. It's very likely not in the same genus as the black and blue Aeolagrions."

Telebasis willinki (Male)

Homeoura nepos (Male)
