Green-striped Darner (Aeshna verticalis), a close relative of the Canada Darner, ranges from the western Great Lakes region through the northeast to the maritime provinces of Canada. In Maryland, its distribution is primarily through the mountains and portions of the piedmont. Aeshna verticalis is uncommon in marshes in Garrett Co., but considered rather rare and local elsewhere in Maryland (Richard Orr's The Dragonflies and Damselflies of Maryland and the District of Columbia).

There are 22 records in the project database.
