I have a pond in a ceramic bowl in my front garden, about a metre across, planted with aquatic plants. Damselflies are cruising around it. My best guess on the species is the Wandering Ringtail (Astrolestes leda) - assuming that this bloke knows what he is talking about. Damselflies differ from Dragonflies in that they rest with wings folded rather than to the side. Like dragonflies their larvae are carnivourous and aquatic.
