      Rich Bailowitz and I went to the San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge east of Douglas today and ran into a single Chalky Spreadwing (Lestes Sigma). This represents a Arizona state record! It was in a small ephemeral pond with a few Plateau Spreadwings. The closest we have found it in Sonora is about 180 miles away in the Sierra Mazatan east of Hermosillo. The refuge was just loaded with odonates today and we recorded 33 species.
