The Crimson Marsh Glider, Trithemis aurora (Libellulidae) is definitely one of the most beautiful dragonflies that you will find, with its vivid and unmistakable abdomen red, magenta or purple, what really stands out. But only the male is of that color, the female has more black and brown abdomen.
The species is found throughout the Indian subcontinent and south east Asia, extending to Japan and south to Java and the Lesser Sunda Islands [source].
Pictured can be seen a male of this species photographed in India.
