Tiger Spiketail ovipositing - Cordulegaster erronea - female

Tiger Spiketail ovipositing - Cordulegaster erronea - Female
White Clay Creek State Park, New Castle County, Delaware, USA
July 17, 2011
Not a terribly good photo, but as the Guide has no records from the state of Delaware yet, and also only one other photo of a female of this species, I'll put this here until something better comes along... This was one of several females ovipositing along a small stream in the park. Mike May gave a talk about this species during the Northeast Regional meeting of the DSA, featuring a hilarious video by his graduate student Dave Moskowitz. During this talk Mike told us about this stream, Hal White gave us directions, and several of us visited it just after the meeting disbanded.
