The dragonfly now known as Neurothemis stigmatizans was the first species described from Australia. Fabricius (1775) named it from specimens in the Banks Collection that were gathered at the Endeavour River on Cape York Peninsula.
A dragonfly seen fairly commonly in the region and tropical northern Queensland. They inhabit a variety of still water habitats, from still pools to large wetlands; often groups congregate together.
