Well we haven’t seen it, but there’s proof right here! Yvonne from Cross Houses has sent in these great exuvia shots- complete with measurements. The Emperor exuvia is really unlike anything else in this country in terms of head and eye shape and sheer size! The Lesser Emperor is very similar, but still such a rare migrant I’m 100% sure this is our resident species Emperor Dragonfly -the largest dragonfly species in the UK.
