Somatochlora kennedyi (Kennedy's Emerald)The only sites are in Northeastern Highlands, notably in the peatlands of the Yellow Bogs area of the Nulhegan Basin (Silvio O. Conte National Wildlife Refuge). May indeed be more rare and more vulnerable than Delicate Emerald (S. franklini). Bog ponds or other standing or flowing water may be included among its habitat preferences, but this has not been confirmed in Vermont. Like its congeners, most encounters are along dirt roads or woodland openings near peatlands. Vermont is toward the southern edge of its range.
