Coenagrion lunulatum is uncommon in The Netherlands. It is found at most acidic, oligotrophic pools and bogs on the Pleistocene soils. In the late 1990s it was also discovered in the coastal dunes of the province of Noord-Holland (not on map). The species seems rather stable on the whole, although it appears to have declined in the southern provinces. In the northern part of the country, where it is currently more widespread, it seems to have benefited by the acidification of pools and bogs.
