Russet-tipped clubtail?
Taken at Payntetown SRA, Lake Monroe. The habitat is not right and the eyes aren't blue (at least what we can see)

Russet-tipped clubtail
Thanks for the ID of Russet-Tipped Clubtail and the link to notify That this Clubtail might be a Monroe Co. record. Plus I got some half decent images of one in Lawrence Co. and I think it is a record. So I'll submit both and see what transpires. Thanks folks.

Moved from Clubtails.

Female Russet-tipped
This is indeed a Russet-tipped Clubtail (Stylurus plagiatus). Nothing else in IN looks quite like it, and the habit of hanging on leaves is very Stylurus-like. This appears to be a new county record and should be submitted to

Thanks for ID'ing this. And thank you for the link.

Moved from Dragonflies.
