Uncommon to our south, widely distributed across most biophysical regions in Vermont, but with few records from the Champlain Valley. Can be abundant at marshy wetlands and ponds, including beaver ponds. Among the first Gomphids on the wing in Vermont and among the few members of its genus favoring lentic habitats. Females are often found sitting in shrubby or grassy vegetation away from natal wetlands.
