Female Blue-tailed Damselflies come in a variety of colour forms, including a pink form, a violet form and a pale green form. Purple/violet, pink and green forms are juvenile, with the colour darkening as the damselfly ages.
The "forma rufescens" has an orange / pink thorax, a blue segment 8 on the abdomen abdomen and no or very narrow shoulder seam line. This form changes color after about one week to the form infuscans-obsoleta
