The slow-flowing River Orbe at Bois d'Amont, 50 kilometres north of Geneva, has a good range of dragonflies and damselflies. Several male Downy Emeralds endlessly patrolled the riverside vegetation but were never seen to settle.

River OrbeWhite-legged and Variable Damselflies were also very frequent here as well as the commoner Large Red and Emerald Damselfies. Unfortunately, possible sightings of Dainty and Southern Emerald Damselflies were never satisfactorily confirmed.
