Thinking about the other Stylurus species along the Raisin River, we headed back to Monroe County, MI on August 20th.
We found Russet-tipped Clubtails (S. plagiatus) and Fawn Darners (Boyeria vinosa), but none of the other Stylurus.
The highlight was flushing a young, male Carolina Saddlebags (Tramea carolina) which provides the first record for Monroe County. I had guessed I'd have to wait until the southerly winds in September brought some north, but that wasn't the case.
Here's a lateral view showing the black down the sides of the abdomen and the smaller hamules:
Here's a shot of the purplish frons:
I guess I'll have to make another visit in early September to Monroe County for the other Stylurus species.
