Leucorrhinia glacialis (Crimson-ringed Whitefact)With similar habitat preferences to L. frigida, this whiteface has a similar, yet somewhat more limited distribution in Vermont. The principal difference is its absence from the Taconic Mountains and the odonate-rich portions of western Rutland County. Can be encountered in low numbers or exceedingly abundant, such as at one pond in the Northeastern Highlands with a shoreline ringed with emergent Leatherleaf (Chamaedaphne calyculata), or a similar high-elevation, acidic pond in the Southern Green Mountains. This is Vermont’s largest Leucorrhinia.
