Closest match I could find in my dragonfly book.


to guide page.

Could be.
I can't tell if both blue rings go all the way around or if the posterior of the two only comes half way around. It looks like it is only half way around which would be Rambur's, at least here. I don't know if you have any others down there that would look like that or not.

Half way
I blew up another view and the rings looks dark half way then very faint.

Also, it is segment 8
that has the most blue, which would indicate Rambur's, so we would agree and will move it there.

Thank you J and J
for confirmation and moving.
