Identification history

Dragonfly Adversaeschna brevistyla 5 Sep 2017 KerriLee

Author's notes

A few days after this single female was sighted, there were large numbers of the species, hawking during the swarming of winged termites. As suddenly as they appeared, they were gone. The two prominent stripes on the side of the thorax are useful in identifying this species.
