Huinay dragonfly

Unfortunately I don’t know what species it is, I haven’t found a good identification source yet for Chilean dragonflies.
This large one sat for almost two days at the entrance to our house, after its last larval moult. It went from an extremely yellowish green to darkening its colours and stretching its wings. After a little warming up of the motors it finally flew away into the next tree and sat on a flower ;)
