Somatochlora kennedy; (Odonata: Corduliidae): a new species for British Columbia, with notes on geographic variation in size and wing venation
The first confirmed record for Somatochlora kennedyi Walker in British Columbia is reported. Specimens of this species from the northern Yukon are smaller than those from elsewhere in its range and have a reduced number of cells in certain parts of the wings. The reduced number of cells may cause some keys to yield ambiguous results.
