General DescriptionBlue and yellow stripes on lateral sides thorax are straight and broad (Figure 2). Similar in appearance to Subarctic Darners(A. subarctica) but differnt by having straight thoracic stripes (instead of slightly notched). Also somewhat similar to Variable Darners (A. interrupta) but different by having broader thoracic stripes. They are easily differentiated from other congeneric species by their thoracic stripe pattern (Paulson, 2009).
