Eastern Least Clubtail - Stylogomphus albistylus

Eastern Least Clubtail - Stylogomphus albistylus
Great Falls National Park, Fairfax County, Virginia, USA
June 10, 2010
Initially thought this was black-shouldered spinytail as they were emerging from the Potomac. However thorax striping different. Could it be elusive clubtail - thorax striping similar, but Dunkle states these rarely found perching. Appreciate ID.

Stylogomphus
The pale cerci help narrow this one down. Eastern Least Clubtail, Stylogomphus albistylus.

 
Thanks
