Emerald- Please help ID - Somatochlora semicircularis
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
July 7, 2008
I think it's an American Emerald, but I never see pics of them with yellow spots on top of the abdomen like this one has. And Beaverpond Baskettails have way more yellow than this one.

Moved
Tentatively moved from Emeralds.

Mountain Emerald I think
This strikes me as a female Mountain Emerald (Somatochlora semicircularis). Walker states that females can show yellow lateral spots like this.

 
Thanks!
Thank you for the input!
...Jeez it's been a while since I checked this :P
