Helocordulia uhleri (Uhler's Sundragon)Sparsely distributed and infrequently encountered in Vermont, with most occurrences in the Northeastern Highlands and Green Mountains. Prefers relatively clean streams and perhaps pond or pond outlets. Distribution may be greater in Vermont than currently known. Among our early-season flyers. Sampling for this species may be more productive when adults move away from natal waters to mature. Later in the season flies low over streams and rivers somewhat like an Ophiogomphus and is therefore difficult to catch and document.

Status: G5 N5 S3S4

Flight Period: May 18 – July 15
