An impressive damselfly of mid-level streams. Primarily associated with the Green Mountains, the Taconic Mountains and the Northeastern Highlands. Among the Calopteryx, this species is a bit harder to find due to its more selective habitat and lower numbers where it does occur. Look for flashes of green and amber along the shore of cool streams near riffles or on strategic perches not far upstream or downstream of such sites.
