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 shows records in SC for Greenville and Pickens counties, but with no data, even though the records have been confirmed by a reviewer. However, the nearest records on the map are in central VA and southeastern WV. If the SC records are legitimate, and Paulson (2011) includes these records on the range map in his book, then the species should occur in NC.
