Terminal appendage comparisons
Zygoptera (Damselflies) of Georgia
Damselflies are typically smaller and more slender than dragonflies. Eyes are widely separated, the fore- and hindwings are equal in size, each wing is noticeably narrowed at the base, and most species hold their wings together over their backs, (The spreadwings are exceptions to this.) They are weak fliers and are often found low in or on vegetation. Like dragonflies they have three main body parts: head, thorax, abdomen.
