Petite Emerald Dorocordulia lepida (Hagen in Selys, 1871)Extirpated  

Status:

Petite Emerald (Dorocordulia lepida) ranges from New Jersey through New England into maritime Canada. It occurs at lakes, bog ponds, and slow-flowing streams through cedar swamps (Paulson, 2011; Dunkle, 2000). This species formerly was recorded historically from Montgomery Co., but is presumed extirpated (Richard Orr's The Dragonflies and Damselflies of Maryland and the District of Columbia).

There are 2 records in the project database.
