Dragonfly Exuviae

Dragonfly Exuviae
Sharon, Windsor County, Vermont, USA
July 29, 2004
On cattail in small pond. I don't know how far this can be identified. Is it at least a dragonfly?
This is the lower exuviae in this image.

Moved from Dragonflies.


Are you saying that this is not Aeshnidae
or is there another reason for moving it from Aeshnid exuviae?

This got tagged by mistake. Was moving things out of Odonata.

Moved from Darners.

Definately a dragonfly exuvia
and probably a darner. Compare with this Anax junius.

I agree.
Definitely something from the Aeshnidae family.

I'll move it to Aeshnidae.
