Kiowa Dancer, Argia immunda, at the Jewel of the Creek Preserve, Maricopa Co., AZ: Second northernmost record for Arizona.

November 9, 2014
Species: Kiowa Dancer

The Kiowa Dancer, even though relatively widespread in Southeast Arizona (mostly in the Gila River drainage), had not been recorded in Maricopa county until 2010. Since then the species has been found at five locations in the Phoenix metropolitan area, suggesting range expansion.

On 9 November 2014 a male Kiowa Dancer was found at the Jewel of the Creek Preserve (Cave Creek; photo below), providing a 6th county location for the species. The Preserve also is the second northernmost site where this dancer has been observed in the state. The record is consistent with the idea that the Kiowa Dancer's range in Arizona is, indeed, currently expanding.
