Basiaeschna janata (Springtime Darner)Scattered distribution at lake and slow stream sites across the state and somewhat less likely to be found in the Champlain Valley and upper elevations of the Green Mountains. Rarely appears at any site in high numbers and is sometimes found patrolling roads or other openings away from natal sites. Owing to its early flight period, B. janata is the most likely candidate when a small, bluish aeshnid drifts by in May or early June.
