Euphaeidae (gossamerwings)

Large, stout damselflies that in some cases resemble Calopterygidae. This family is widespread in the Old World tropics and usually found on forest streams. The nymphs have 3 sac-like gills rather than flat, petiolate ones and a row of supplementary gills on both lateral sides of the abdomen. There’s only 1 species in Europe: the magnificent Odalisque (Epallage fatime).
