Enallagma geminatum

(Skimming Bluet)

Enallagma geminatum can be found at scattered localities throughout Alabama and Mississippi. Suitable habitat includes ponds, lakes, and slow-moving streams with floating vegetation. Males occasionally have the blue antehumeral stripes broken into an upside-down exclamation mark. This species, along with many other lentic damselflies, is often found with one to many parasitic mites attached to its thorax or abdomen.
