Leucorrhinia frigida (Frosted Whitefact)Vermont’s abundance of lake and ponds with a shoreline of emergent plants contributes to a fairly widespread distribution of this species, which also shows up at bogs with open ponds. Most reliable biophysical regions are those with elevation, with Champlain Valley and the Connecticut River Valley offering fewest sites. At some sites, this small whiteface can almost mirror L. julia in abundance, offering large and small versions of dragonflies with the same pruinosity to the base of their abdomens. L. frigida is often accompanied by at least one other member of its genus at many sites.
