They have separated eyes that bulge outside of their head, while most dragonflies have connected eyes above their head. At rest, damselflies hold their wings together along their body, while dragonflies stretch them out perpendicular to their body. Damselflies have four similar wings, while dragonflies have hindwings that are broader at the base.
