Sympetrum obtrusum (m)
|[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista|
|The White-faced Meadowhawk (Sympetrum obtrusum) is a dragonfly of the genus Sympetrum. It is found in the northern United States and southern Ontario. Adult males are identifiable by a distinctive pure white face and red bodies. |
Juvenile White-faced Meadowhawks are almost indistinguishable from the Ruby and Cherry-faced Meadowhawks. The three species habitats also overlap extensively. White-faces can be identified by having white faces, as the name implies, at maturity.
This is a small dragonfly with a length of 1 1/4 to 1 9/16 inches (31 to 39 mm). Mature males have a yellowish white face, a dark thorax, and a shiny red abdomen marked with black triangles along each side. The wings are clear but may be clouded with yellowish brown where they attach to the body. The legs may appear yellowish and have black spines. Females and immature males are olive to golden brown and are marked similarly.
This species is found from the Northwest Territories of Canada east to Nova Scotia, extending south into the U.S. to Utah, Kansas, and Kentucky. In Idaho, it occurs throughout the state though less commonly in the southeast part of the state.
This dragonfly can be found near bogs, lakes, ponds, and ditches. They appear to prefer small, stagnant ponds & their flight season is from early July to mid-October
Species: S. obtrusum
