|Band-winged Meadowhawk / Sympétrum semi-ambré|
Size/taille: 24-31 mm
Habitat: This species is mainly associated with flooded, well-vegetated, marshy areas in spring-fed ponds or in slow-flowing, spring-fed streams, especially those with sedges.
Flight period: In New Brunswick, it emerges in early July and flies into early November, making it one of the very last species on the wing. Only the Autumn Meadowhawk (Sympetrum vicinum) has been recorded later.
Nature Notes: On average, this is the smallest of the seven species of Meadowhawk found in New Brunswick. Apparently the larvae of this species are rather susceptible to fish predation and do not compete well with other dragonflies, so their distribution is more patchy and localized.
