Indolestes dajakanus

To quote Orr's (2003) narration for this species: "Indolestes dajakanus is known from a single specimen collected 70 years ago in Sarawak, probably not far from Kuching. It is now housed in Stockholm. When viewed from above, the synthorax has a pale ground colour marked with a broad black central band expanded near the base of the wings, roughly forming an elongate, inverted 'T'. The male hindwing is 23.5 mm, distinctly larger than Lestes praemorsus or L. praevius. Nothing is known of its biology."
