Please tell what this is. I'm assuming it is a damselfly or a darner, but i can't find a match for it. Thank you.

Moved from Antlions.

Re: Dragonfly
Myrmeleontidae looks like a good match, but I wouldn't know how to narrow it down further than that.

Antlion Brachynemurus abdominalis
Thank you, i believe that is what it is. It looks like what is in my picture.

Looks a bit like
Brachynemurus abdominalis

Might be something close to that, at any rate. Maybe an expert will be able to say for sure.

I'm thinking it's neither... Zygopterans should have no easily-visible antennae. Some kind of neuropteran perhaps? I'll do some poking around.
