Brown-eyed Dorocordulia? - Dorocordulia libera

Brown-eyed Dorocordulia? - Dorocordulia libera
Almonte, Lanark, Ontario, Canada
June 14, 2017
Same as the previous posting. It could be Dorocordulia libera, but the eyes are brown, not green. Near a swamp.

Hi Tony, Are these females
Hi Tony,

Are these females of Dorocordulia libera then?

Males have blue or blue-green eyes (e.g., see my earlier postings such as http://bugguide.net/node/view/1454610), and these have brown eyes.

Perhaps eye color in these species signals maturity?
