Variegated Meadowhawk - Sympetrum corruptum

Variegated Meadowhawk - Sympetrum corruptum
Antelope Island, Davis County, Utah, USA
August 4, 2005
Size: 2-3 inch wing span
Please help me identify this Dragonfly. Probably Meadowhawk and I thought Libellulidae but have been unable to figure it out. Any clues you can give will be much appreciated. Orange abdomen with black-white marks on side. Yellow dots under where wing attaches to body.

S. corruptum
Yes, we'd say Variegated Meadowhawk. See . Just about to post some from Oregon ourselves!
