Cordulia shurtleffii (American Emerald)Common in much of Vermont, with the exception of the Champlain Valley. Also appears less common in the Southern Piedmont, but that could be in part due to lack of sampling. Mostly associated with ponds, fens and bogs, and has been found at every elevation in Vermont up to ponds near the summit of Mount Mansfield. Flight season appears to end rather abruptly in mid to late July.

Status: G5 N5 S5
