One female was observed ovipositing into mossy vegetation, which was growing on a vertical bank, located some 1.5 metres above the stream surface, adjacent to a clump of screwpine (Panadanus sp.) with an extensive aquatic root system.
Males involved in territorial disputes, located at favoured, sunlight spots beside sizable flowing streams, angled the tips of their orange-red abdomens upward and flew side by side for long periods, often slowly rising up towards the adjacent forest canopy. The flights terminated when one of the males would fly rapidly to take up a prominent position at a favoured sunlight spot, with the losing male taking up a position several metres away in a less favoured position. The disputes were often quickly resumed and in one case continued for over twenty minutes.
