Amanda's Pennant? - No, Faded! - Celithemis ornata

Amanda's Pennant? - No, Faded! - Celithemis ornata

Amanda's Pennant
Nice shot! Are you sure this isn't a Faded Pennant? I'm very much an amateur/hobbyist, but from what I've read, the thoracic stripes are indicative of Celithemis ornata. And, of the very few pics I've been able to find, this is a dead ringer for what one expert has labeled a Faded.

Nice correction! Thanks
We would agree that this has the thoracic pattern of C. ornata not C. amanda. We'll move it to it's proper place in the guide. Thanks again and keep on looking!
