July 28, 2019

The Eastern Amberwing reaches the western end of its distribution in Arizona, where it is found at a few locations in the southeast quarter of the state (Odonata Central) and at altitudes not exceeding 1,750 m (Bailowitz et al., 2015). On 28 July 2019 several individuals (two males shown below) were observed at Point of Pines Lake (http://azdragonfly.org/locations/point-pines-lake). This represents a new location for the species in Arizona and the highest elevation (1,907 m) where it has been recorded to date in the state.
