The Odonata of Tarrant County - Erpetogomphus designatus (♀)

Erpetogomphus designatus (♀) – lateral


Female Erpetogomphus designatus perching on tall piece of grass. This is the only species of the brightly-colored genus Erpetogomphus that is currently known to occur in Tarrant County. Despite their fierce posture I have found them to be more approachable than some of the other species belonging to the same family, Gomphidae.


Thank you for your support.
