Robust Baskettail? - Epitheca semiaquea - Female
Pittsgrove, Salem County, New Jersey, USA
May 3, 2013
Size: 1.8"
I got this picture at Parvin State Park and I'm fairly sure this is a ROBUST BASKETTAIL. Stout, non-tapered body, heavy gray 'fur' on the thorax. There were also Common Baskettails all around and their abdomens were much thinner then this specimen. Am I right?

Received information from Ed Lam that this is a Mantled Baskettail.

This is a female
