Flora & Fauna
The name ‘Yellow-tailed Ashy Skimmer’ is most aptly descriptive of the male Potamarcha congener. The ‘yellow tail’ refers to the predominantly yellow abdomen, which bears black markings. The ‘ashy’ refers to the thorax, which appears to be invariably pruinosed (frosted in appearance). Potamarcha congener is commonly known as Blue Percher, Yellow-tailed Ashy Skimmer, Blue Pursuer and Blue Chaser.
