Calopteryx aequabilis maleRelatively widely distributed in low- to mid-elevation streams and rivers around the state. Usually found in slower reaches where substrate is sandy to mucky and shoreline plants offer perching spots. Can be fairly common on some rivers, particularly where they empty into Lake Champlain or the Connecticut River. The lower Poultney River is one of the best sites in the state to find this insect.
