Variable Dancer Damselfly (Argia fumipennis)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Variable Dancer Damselfly (Argia fumipennis)

As suggested by the name, very variable in coloring so much so that there is some debate about subspecies. Some would consider this particular insect a “Black” Dancer Damselfly (A. f. atra) or perhaps a “Smoky-winged” Dancer (A. f. fumipennis).


Shown on Florida Native Plant: SHYLEAF (Aeschynomene americana)
