Boyeria grafiana - Boyeria vinosa

Boyeria grafiana - Boyeria vinosa
Chatooga River, Oconnee County, South Carolina, USA
May 28, 2011

Moved from Ocellated Darner.

It was identified in the field, in hand by Steve Krotzer who is one of the leading odontologists in the southeast and is a reviewer for Odonata Central.

I know Steve
And I'm sorry, but the identification is still incorrect. Please take a moment and compare your dragonfly to these scans of female grafiana and vinosa.

This is also Boyeria vinosa, for the same reasons as the other image.
