One of North America’s most widespread and abundant species, but doesn’t quite fit its national reputation in Vermont. The Champlain Valley represents the core of its distribution, with only scattered sites across the rest of the state. Prefers lakes, ponds and slow-moving waters, all with floating vegetation. Abundance at any given site can be high in the Champlain Valley, but that is rarely the case at sites in other biophysical regions.
