Answer
First of all Eric you should know that allexperts is a free service. Donations are accepted but not required.
I am somewhat confused by your question. The insects you mention do not fit any that I am aware of and since I cannot see one I cannot identify it. If you are thinking about some sort of connection between these insects and your child's birthmarks I cannot speak to that.
I can tell that dragonflies do not fly at night and never in groups
