Damselflies (Rhinocypha humeralis) play an important ecological role as they are one of the most visible indicators of the ecosystem health and biophysical conditions of wetland areas in which they breed. They are also helpful to potential human health risks by consuming mosquitoes and their larvae. They also eat other small invertebrates which make them valuable in controlling harmful insect populations. Loss of damselflies could have a ripple effect on food webs.
