|These three nymphs were in the spring
at Oliver Lee Memorial State Park, on 8 July 2008.
The damselfly nymph on the left is Archilestes grandis
(Great Spreadwing). The larvae on the right might be Pseudoleon superbus
(Filigree Skimmer). The nymph in the middle is a complete
mystery. It reminds me of a Somatochlora in the
body, but we do not have any known Somatochlora species. The
angular head seems unusual, particularly because it appears wider
behind the forward facing eyes. Any ideas about an identification of the
middle nymph would be greatly appreciated.
