Epitheca is a genus of dragonflies in the family Corduliidae. They are commonly known as baskettails. They are large, strong fliers, most often seen cruising over open water, rarely perched. The single European species (more occur in Japan and especially North America) is a shy, brownish corduliid, with boldly marked wings and without green metallic colours.
