Naming

Edmond de Sélys Longchamps named this damselfly in honor of Jules Pierre Rambur,
an entomologist 12 years his senior. Rambur's collection of insects was one of several that was incorporated into that of Sélys.

Habitat

Ponds, lakes, marshes, and slow streams with vegetation and sunlight are its main habitat.
Damselfly nymphs never live in salt water, but ''I. ramburii'' nymphs have been observed in brackish and even sulphurous waters.
