Lancet Clubtail kicks off for the season

I've only spent a tiny amount of time in the field, but really haven't seen squat yet. However, yesterday, Stylurus brought home a teneral female Lancet Clubtail, Gomphus exilis, from Oakland Co. This is the earliest record for an adult in the state by 9 days. This boring little ode (sorry, but they are really very dull) is one of the earliest odes to emerge in spring. We've had them before in Wayne County as well.
