San Bernardino NWR, Cochise County, AZ NEW STATE RECORD!!!!!
- 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.American Rubyspot-1California Spreadwing-10Great Spreadwing-4Plateau Spreadwing-2CHALKY SPREADWING-1Variable Dancer-12Spine-tipped Dancer-4Springwater Dancer-1Aztec Dancer20Familiar Bluet40Arroyo Bluet-60Mexican Forktail-25Black-fronted Forktail-8Desert Firetail-100'sCommon Green Darner-20Giant Darner-1Malachite Darner-1Blue-eyed Darner-15Serpent Ringtail-1Western Pondhawk-40Plateau Dragonlet-20Flame Skimmer-100'sTwelve-spotted Skimmer-1Widow Skimmer-20Comanche Skimmer-1Roseate Skimmer-4Blue Dasher-100'sCommon Whitetail-4Mexican Amberwing-3Slough Amberwing-3Variegated Meadowhawk-12Black Saddlebags-60Red Saddlebags-20Doug DanforthBisbee, AZ
