The Arroyo Bluet in Arizona had until now been found only until the first half of December. Four males of this species were along the stream of the Jewel of the Creek Preserve, Maricopa, AZ, on 31 December 2011, thereby establishing a new late flying date for the species in the state. Below are pictures of three individuals seen that day.
