Flora & Fauna
The Copera marginipes is commonly known as Yellow Bush Dart, Rimmed Feather Leg and Yellow Feather Leg. The general impression of an adult male Copera marginipes is of an insect with yellow legs, a dark, slim, white-tipped abdomen and a head and thorax with light markings. A closer examination will reveal the light marks to be yellow. The female insect differs in having a relatively stout abdomen and in being duller. The colour is brown of various shades. Both male and female individuals have some black markings. Copera marginipes breeds both in still water (ponds, marshes) and in streams.
