Range & Habitat:
Recorded from northern counties where it is found in bigs and
fens along the Kittatinny Ridge and in the highlands.
Largely blue, with a relatively narrow black humeral stripe,
it is virtually identical to the less common
Boreal Bluet. The postocular
spots are large and rounded-triangular, narrowly separated from
a thin occipital bar. Can be distinguished from
Familiar Bluet by the large
postocular spots and the shorter cerci. Can be told from
complex by the size and shape of the postocular spots and
possibly by the nearly all black S10.
Recently split from the Palearctic E. cyathegerum.
Conservation Status:State: S2 - Imperiled in New Jersey
