<i>Libelula subornata</i> (Odonata: Libellulidae) in Canada
AbstractThe dragonfly <i>Libellula subornata</i>, a species of arid southwestern North America, is reported from Canada for the first time. Specimens collected over a number of vears at Nanaimo, British Columbia, have recently come to light. Features that distinguish this species from the common <i>Libellula forensis</i> and <i>L. lydia</i> are noted.
