Any ideas? Common at edge of fair sized pond, not much above sea level. Coverage of Ed Lam book stops at Maine, and they all look alike. Not sure if ID can be made just from photo.

Actually in Lam's book
they switch from being mostly black to being mostly blue right at E carunculatum, page 65. It will be interesting to see what Cliff says, but we always think of these with abdominal segment 4 equally divided between black and blue as E carunculatum. Other species seem either to have more blue or more black on the abdomen.

Thanks for your input. Cliff agrees with you.

Sounds good to me
I would draw the same conclusions from Lam, although I will add I have never seen this species.

Thanks for your input.
