Habitat Type: Freshwater
Comments: This species occurs in a variety of streams and small rivers but is most common along shallow forested streams. It tends to be found on smaller, more forested streams than the related river jewelwing, Calopteryx aequabilis (Nikula et al., 2003). Habitat generally consists of small, slow moving, canopy covered streams and occasionally exposed streams and rivulets. Nymphs are local in occurrence and restricted to slow creeks and quiet areas of running streams (Abbott, 2007).
