Orange Bluet Enallagma signatum (Hagen, 1861)  

Status:

Orange Bluet (Enallagma signatum) is a common to abundant species with an extensive range in eastern North America. This species can be found at ponds, lakes, and slow sections of rivers, and it will tolerate degraded habitats. It often becomes more active later in the day ((Paulson, 2011). This species ranges across Maryland, and almost certainly occurs in every county (Richard Orr's Dragonflies and Damselflies of Maryland and the District of Columbia).

There are 417 records in the project database.
