Brush-tipped Emerald in the Canadian Maritimes: a new late record? - Somatochlora walshii - female

Brush-tipped Emerald in the Canadian Maritimes: a new late record? - Somatochlora walshii - Female
Pelerin, Kent County, New Brunswick, Canada
September 18, 2011
This may be the latest date in the Canadian Maritimes (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island) for this species. The eight previous September records I could find run from September 2nd, 1999 at Mushamush Lake in Nova Scotia to Isaacs Lake at Highway 348 in Prince Edward Island on September 15th, 2001. Anyway, it was a bit of an ID puzzle as well, but Bug Guide helped me figure it out with this pic:

Somatochlora female
Hi Denis. Glad the pic was of some help to you. Here in Manitoba, Brush-tipped female is the only one with those distinctive rings. Right now, our late date for S. walshii is August 30. Nice find, and in your own back yard too!
