Dorocordulia lepida (Petite Emerald)Found mostly at a few locations in the eastern part of the state, which fits its overall distribution as a coastal plain species, though a few records do exist west of Vermont. A bog and fen specialist. The boggy Northeast Highlands includes the majority of sites for this species, though Lily Pond, a coastal plain pond in extreme southeastern Vermont, seems to have a reliable population. In addition, it has been recently found at a bog in southwestern Vermont. Flight season is likely longer than our limited records indicate.
