 Plains Clubtail Dragonfly - Gomphurus externus - female

Plains Clubtail Dragonfly - Gomphurus externus - Female
2 km S of Fairy Hill Marsh, Saskatchewan, Canada
June 9, 2015
Have communicated with Dennis Paulson, who has reviewed better views of these via email. Consideration to the length of the hind legs in comparison to S2, amongst other marks has lead him to confirm this as a Plains Clubtail. A friend who was with me who also provided information that lead to this, has submitted it to Odonata Central (per Dennis' suggestion), and he has noted: "as an interesting record, so it will be available to future researchers.... / ... the first record for the province." Thank you Dennis Paulson and Kim Mann.
