The quintessential peatland whiteface. Fairly reliable at bogs and fens and, to a lesser extent, ponds. Like L. proxima, its tendency to be more common in northern Vermont probably reflects its northern distribution across the continent. Often the first Leucorrhinia taking flight at bogs and fens, as early as April in some cases, making it a distraction for those few hearty souls out in frigid peatlands searching for Williamsonia lintneri at the start of the season.
