UV2 Hard Bodied Damsel Larva- Damselflies are of the suborder Zygoptera. They are similar to dragonflies but are smaller, have slimmer bodies. Damselflies are found on every continent except Antarctica.
They are predatory; both nymphs and adults eat other insects. The nymphs are aquatic, with different species living in a variety of freshwater habitats including acid bogs, ponds, lakes and rivers. The nymphs moult repeatedly, at the last moult climbing out of the water to undergo metamorphosis. The skin splits down the back, they emerge and inflate their wings and abdomen to gain their adult form.
