Enallagma civile (Familiar Bluet)Another species that does well in the Champlain Valley, particularly close to the lake itself. Surprisingly, this bluet was not found in Vermont until 1993, perhaps owing to a lack of investigators. Or perhaps this species may be showing recent movement into the state from the west or southwest. Fall semester entomology classes in Burlington (on Lake Champlain) are responsible for all records from 1993 to 2000 after which it started being found elsewhere in the state. This species can occur in significant numbers in marshy ponds.
