Status:

Powdered Dancer (Argia moesta) has an extensive range, and can be numerically quite abundant on many rivers and creeks. The pruinose mature males are quite distinctive, and sometimes the only conspicuous odonates at some locations. This species is widespread in Maryland, but is evidently absent from the Eastern Shore (Richard Orr's Dragonflies and Damselflies of Maryland and District of Columbia).

There are 246 records in the project database.
