Kiowa Dancer, Argia immunda, at Gilbert Water Ranch (Gilbert, Maricopa Co.)

April 19, 2014
Species: Kiowa Dancer

The Kiowa Dancer in Maricopa Co., AZ, remains a rare species, with only a handful of observations, only two of which in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

During a visit to the Gilbert Water Ranch in Gilbert on 19 April 2014, seven males (three of which shown below) plus one pair in tandem (see below) were seen along two artificial streams between ponds. These numbers represent the largest concentration of Kiowa Dancer individuals found to date in Maricopa Co. The observation of a pair in tandem is the first to suggest local breeding.
