Chromagrion conditum (Aurora Damsel)Found in most of Vermont with the exception of the Champlain Valley. While it does occur at lower elevations in the right habitat, the average elevation of sites in Vermont is about 400 meters. Mostly associated with boggy, seepy areas and can be more common back in the undergrowth rather than at water’s edge. Also found at lakes or ponds, generally with clear, cool water. C. conditum is one of our earlier species with all records of tenerals being found in May.
