Enallagma - Enallagma doubledayi - male

Enallagma - Enallagma doubledayi - Male
Nacogdoches County, Texas, USA
June 28, 2013
Have been calling this Enallagma doubledayi because of strong occipital bar and the cerci seem to fit (though it might be hard to see). Its also in east Texas but still...

Moved from ID Request.

Agree with your ID - Enallagma doubledayi
The cerci aren't totally in focus but, in my opinion, are clear enough to rule out Enallagma civile.
Note the comments by Martin Reid about the "pinched in" black spike on abdominal segment 6.
Martin Reid - Atlantic Bluet

You might want to submit this record to OdonataCentral as it may be a first record for Nacogdoches County.

Finally submitted 8 new species for my county (now pending). Forgot I signed up for OdonataCentral in June 2016, thanks for reminding me.
