How you want your letter signed:  Johannes


Dear Johannes,
These are not Dragonflies, but they are Damselflies from the suborder Zygoptera, and Dragonflies are in a different suborder but within the same order Odonata.  The Damselfly with the red markings looks like a 
Hetaerina sp. pictured on Costa Rican Dragonflies and Damselflies. and it looks like a Occisa Rubyspot from Belize we have in our archives. We are uncertain about your other individual.
