California Dancer - Argia agrioides - female

California Dancer - Argia agrioides - Female
San Rafael Grasslands near Lochiel, Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA
August 6, 2009
To me this looks just like the female Aztec Dancer on page 155 (1), but the description says female's need to be in hand to tell them apart from Amethyst, Lavender, leonora's, and Variable.

Moved from Aztec Dancer.

William Edwards looked at this one too
and he also thinks this is better placed under agrioides.

Identified by association with this male.
