"Fast winged insect, often found near ponds and streams."
—The Folio Bruti.[src]

The dragonfly is a type of insect, notable for its large wings and long body. Known species of dragonfly include the Imperial Dragonfly, which is stronger than the common variety. Dragonflies are particularly susceptible to the Knockback Jinx, the Fire-Making Spell, the Full Body-Bind Curse, the Softening Charm, and Glacius. Like most winged creatures, they can resist the Levitation Charm.

The thorax of the dragonfly is used by wizards as a potion ingredient.
