cordulagaster-maculata-vt-17june2016-j-lincolnOne of the most common and predictable odonates in streams and rivers of Vermont. Found in all physiographic regions, though less so in the Champlain Valley. Larvae seem to be almost a “given” in most small to medium streams. Present, but less common in larger, slow-flowing rivers. Less frequently observed as adults, but when found they are usually patrolling the edges of streams in a fairly regular pattern.
