Blue Dasher - Pachydiplax longipennis - Female
Stafford, Stafford County, Virginia, USA
September 4, 2005
Along edge of open field with thick and very high vegetation. Creek on other side of open field. My guess is a female Blue Dasher, Pachydiplax longipennis? Confirmation or correction appreciated.

The thorax markings are distinctive, definitely Blue Dasher.

Thanks, Lois.
