NatureScot Commissioned Report 709: Site Condition Monitoring for the northern emerald dragonfly at Meall na Samhna SSSI
The northern emerald is a dragonfly difficult to locate, but a larva, an exuvia and an adult were seen. The site is well-established, with records since 1983, thus it is likely that more specimens are present. The site was found to be in favourable condition. Eight other dragonfly species were present, of which three were seen at a newly created pond adjacent to the SSSI.
