NL: Oranje zonnewijzer | DE: Feuerroter Sonnenzeiger | FR: Trithémis de Kirby

Trithemis kirbyi (Orange-winged Dropwing) occurs almost all over Africa, the south of Arabia and parts of India. In 2007 the species was first found in continental Europe with sightings in southern Spain and since then it has been expanding to the north fast, mainly following Spain’s east coast. In 2017 the first Orange-winged Dropwings were found in continental France and in the summer of 2022 a (possibly the same) male was photographed along the Semois river in Belgium on two occasions.
