The distribution of <i>Tanypteryx hageni</i> (Odonata: Petaluridae) in British Columbia
Keywords:<i>Tanypteryx hageni</i>, Odonata, Petaluridae
AbstractIn British Columbia the petalurid dragonfly <i>Tanypteryx hageni</i> (Selys) is considered to be rare. A record in 1977 extends its known range almost to 51°N latitude. The record also disputes the belief that <i>T. hageni</i> normally is restricted to subalpine habitats. In the northern parts of its range it appears to occur naturally at sea level.
