The Podolestes orientalis is a common forest damselfly. It was first recorded in Singapore in 1997 and commonly known as the Flatwings Damselfly. It is moderately built which likes to perch with its wings open up like a dragonfly.
I initially thought it was a uncommon species but when I explored more into the various forest, I realised that they are actually quite common.
