A recent addition, not only to the Vermont list but to all of New England as well. Mike Blust and Laura Gaudette discovered this bluet on the Ompompanoosuc River in Thetford on 10 August 2014 and posted it to iNaturalist Vermont. It was quickly verified by another expert thanks to Mike’s close-up images of the important parts. It is not yet known whether this was a lone individual or part of an established population.
