Compound Eye - The damselflies eyes are made up of many thousands of lenses.
Claw - Used for clinging on to available perches.
Antehumeral Region - The upper surface of the thorax. Many species have coloured stripes in this region which are an aid to species identification. However the Small Red Damselfly lacks these features.
Abdominal Segments - The abdomen is divided into clear segments which are also an aid to species identification. A segment may contain areas of unique marking or colour.
Antennae - Sensory organs on the top of the damselflies head.
