Trying to finish the year on a good note, I visited the Jewel of the
Creek Preserve N. of Phoenix yesterday and found three species still on
the wing. The best of these was ARROYO BLUET, which represents a new
late flying date for the state. Details below.
* Variegated Meadowhawk, Sympetrum corruptum: ~10 males
* Arroyo Bluet, Enallagma praevarum: 4 males; see
* Citrine Forktail, Ischnura hastata: 1 female + 1 male
