Tramea is a genus of dragonflies in the family Libellulidae,[2] the skimmers and perchers. Species of Tramea are found in tropical and subtropical regions around the globe.[3] They typically have colored bases to their otherwise translucent hindwings. In particular when they fly, this creates the impression of their carrying bags at the start of their abdomens. They are known commonly as saddlebags[4] or saddlebags gliders.[5]

The genus Tramea includes the following species,[6][7] some of which have subspecies:[8]

Tramea abdominalis (Rambur, 1842) – Vermilion Saddlebags[9]
Tramea aquila Lieftinck, 1942

Wing markings of Tramea dragonflies are striking and help distinguish different species.
