On June 24, 2007, four males Dainty Bluet (Coenagrion scitulum) were recorded in the Kievittepolder, near Cadzand-Bad in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen (Zeeland). This is the second documented record of this species in The Netherlands. The discovery took place after records earlier that year along the northern part of the west coast of Belgium. On July 1st. Others recorded the species at the same locality and at a second site near Cadzand-Bad. Reproductive behaviour was observed and photographed. It is likely that Coenagrion scitulum will settle in The Netherlands and will be expanding its range in years to come.
