The azure damselfly (Coenagrion puella) is a species of damselfly found in most of Europe. It is pale blue with bands of black along the body. To identify the small blue damselflies, of which there are several species, it helps to concentrate on the pattern on the second segment of the males' abdomen, just behind the thorax. In the Azure damselfly, this segment is blue with a black U-shape.
