Publications on Odonata (or other taxa, for that matter) with abnormal coloration or pattern are important to help us understand the range of variations within and among species and consider biological and evolutionary impacts.
Our latest note on a weird Common Baskettail was just published in the most recent issue of the Argia:
Craves, J.A. and D. S. O'Brien. 2016. Common Baskettail, Epitheca cynosura (Odonata: Corduliidae), with extensive dark wing tips. Argia 28(3):11-12.
We have a page with all of our ode papers here; and more insect papers as well as other publications can be found at Julie's ResearchGate page.
