(Celithemis elisa). A small population of this species occurs at Pella Crossing Open Space near Hygiene, Colorado–a surprising discovery. An eastern species . . . did it get introduced by fish stocking programs? Very few records occur for the state of Colorado. Males have striking red and black markings in the abdomen have dark wingtips, midwing spots, and large basal spots in the hindwings. Habitat: fields with taller grasses. Season: summer.
