Identification history

Unidentified 13 Apr 2019 Paul Whitington

Author's notes

size and shape of antennae suggest this dragonfly larva belongs to family Synthemidae, Corduliiudae or Libellulidae. However the mayfly hitching a ride on the back hides some of the diagnostic structures, such as wing sheaths!
