A Baskettail innit? But none match... - Helocordulia uhleri - male

A Baskettail innit? But none match... - Helocordulia uhleri - Male
near English, Crawford County, Indiana, USA
May 20, 2013
I cannot decipher which Baskettail this is. The cerci do not look like anything that ought to be in this area. I did net this specimen over water, so it got soaked during capture, if that makes any difference in structure appearance.
Anyone have a thought?

Uhler's Sundragon?
Helocordulia uhleri matches up quite well. Indiana isn't on the range maps I've seen so you will need to get confirmation from someone a lot more expert than me!

 
Wow, DeeDee, thanks a lot. If
Wow, DeeDee, thanks a lot. If so, that's a nice range extension. I looked in Paulson's book and it matches well. I only know the local stuff, thought was a Baskettail, and almost didn't bother to catch it.
