Description of Habitat/Range:
Found at spring-fed ponds, marshy meadows, marshy lakes, ponds, and slow streams bordered by sedges, this species is fairly common in parts of its range in northeast from Virginia and Minnesota to Maine, including southeastern Canada. It is widely distributed throughout Wisconsin, although uncommon. Preferred habitats here are fens, wet sedge meadows, and ponds, usually with some contribution of spring flow; also some marshy lake shores and well-vegetated slow streams. Often joins mixed-species feeding swarms.
Mid-June to late September in Wisconsin.
