Raphismia bispina - second record for Sulawesi?

Just back from leading the first Greentours Sulawesi and Halmahera tour, not many new dragonflies unsurprisingly as we mainly looked at birds and mammals. The big surprise came at Remang-Remang in South Sulawesi when we bumped into a single Raphismia bispina. I have been looking for this species for a long time so it was great to lay it to rest at last. The additional good news though was that is was perhaps only the second record for the island, the first and last being reported by Ris in 1910!
