Celithemis eponina (Halloween Pennant)Scattered through the lower elevations of western Vermont and along the southern border. Not recorded from Vermont until 24 June 2002, when it was simultaneously recorded from two different locations by separate observers. Emergence has been observed on blooming waterlilies, reinforcing a preference for vegetated waters. Seems to travel some distance from water and is often found in relatively dry, weedy fields.
