Coryphagrion grandis

provided by wikipedia EN

Coryphagrion grandis is a species of damselfly found in coastal forests and on the lower slopes of the Eastern Arc Mountains in Kenya, Tanzania and Mozambique.[1] Its monotypic genus Coryphagrion is considered as the only member of the family Coryphagrionidae (sometimes placed in the Megapodagrionidae as subfamily Coryphagrioninae). It was once placed within the family Pseudostigmatidae,[2] whose other members are all Neotropical, but further studies showed this family was paraphyletic.[3]
