Green-striped Darner (Aeshna verticalis)? - Aeshna verticalis - male

Green-striped Darner (Aeshna verticalis)? - Aeshna verticalis - Male
Brentwood, Rockingham County, New Hampshire, USA
August 19, 2012
Size: 70mm long
I am leaning to Green-striped over Canada with the following rationale: Lateral thoracic stripes green with some blue in posterior stripe (typical of Green-striped), notched anterior stripe (Canada or Green-striped), small yellow spot on lateral thorax (as opposed to larger spot on Canada), S2 upper lateral spot deeply cleft (Green-striped), S3-S4 less narrowed than Canada.
