Description of Habitat/Range:
Ranging throughout eastern United States, this species can be found at ponds, long-lasting puddles, lakes, and slow streams, often with water lilies, cattails, or other vegetation. It also may be found at ponds inlets or outlets. In Wisconsin, we are at the northwestern limit of its range, and it is known from only a few southern counties.
The flight season, throughout its range, is from late April to early September. In Wisconsin, a few adults have been documented in late May and late June.
