Identification
Similar to Okanagana rimosa, but separated by the dull dorsum and lack of red borders to abdominal tergites.
Range
Across Canada and occasionally into the northern US.
Remarks
This is the common northern species. It has longer, more pointed wings than O. bella. It gets up into the NWT, the furthest north for anywhere in the world (Nipawin is on the edge of the boreal forest, so this is "southern" for this species).
