comments This is a northern species, ranging south in the eastern states to VA, WV, and KY. Cuyler has no records, nor are any others known for NC. However, the species is listed for NC in Westfall and May (1996) and Mauffray (2005). The OdonataCentral map showed literature records in SC for Greenville and Pickens counties until early 2019 when their status was reviewed by SC-based records vetter Chris Hill. Hill traced the origins of the records, determined that there was insufficient certainty that they were correctly identified, and changed them to declined record status. The nearest documented records to NC thus now lie in central VA and southeastern WV.
