The Dragonfly in a Jar is a miscellaneous item that, as its name suggests, contains a live orange dartwing in a jar. There are other types of jars like this that can be found throughout Skyrim; each jar contains a different insect. It is one of many insects found living in Skyrim.


The jar can be found in Dushnikh Yal, inside Burguk's Longhouse in the cellar (which is entered via a trapdoor to the right of the fireplace, directly ahead from the entrance to the longhouse). The Dragonfly in a Jar is located on the lower shelf of a cupboard, which is under the scaffolding when first entering the cellar.



  • Like the Bee in a Jar, the Dragonfly in a Jar does not respawn.
  • The symbols on the inner side of the lid read a "+," a "W," and what appears to be an upside-down, backwards checkmark.
