Adin, Antwerp Belgium - The newfound species is about 1.3 inches (3.4 cm) long. It lives close to mountain streams in a remote region in The Garden of Adin. So far, only gold specimens are known; with an opal body, pearl spots and ruby eyes.

The species is named Stultitia Elkanti, in honor of Prof. Elkan Wijnberg, Chief biologist at the Garden of Adin. “Having a newly discovered animal or plant species named after oneself is one of the most beautiful awards for a biologist,” Prof. Wijnberg commented. “I’m extraordinarily honored, for sure, but there are a lot of other dragonfly researchers who would have deserved this award before me.”

Research describing the new species is published online in the Adin Weekly Herald.
