Damselfly Body Scan - Enallagma civile - male

Damselfly Body Scan - Enallagma civile - Male
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
May 28, 2015
Size: 30mm
I tried filming this Damselfly up close, but I'm not sure if all of these views are good enough for the BugGuide. I think that it is a male Familiar Bluet, Enallagma civile.

Moved from American Bluets.

After checking other BugGuide images and also the website azdrogonfly.org listing for the Familiar Bluet, Enallagma civile and ruling out the look-alikes, such as the Atlantic Bluet, Enellagma doubledayi, which does not occur in this state. I'm ready to move him.
