Ischnura posita (Fragile Forktail)Widespread and common in Vermont, but less frequently encountered than Eastern Forktail (I. verticalis). May be somewhat under reported due to its tendency to stay low within the vegetation. Found in a wide range of habitats, often vegetated pond edges and river edges. Somewhat more likely at lower elevations, but can be found in mountainous areas as well.
