Micrathyria hagenii (female)
[

Per Paulson (1):
Note the YI lateral stripe pattern on thorax (separates from female Pachydiplax longipennis and Micrathyria didyma)
Note that the dorsal spots on abdominal segment 7 are squarish (separates from Micrathyria aequalis)

Both of these characteristics are evident in your excellent images.
