Lilypad Forktail (Ischnura kellicotti) - a new damselfly for the Maritimes

On July 10th Miranda Weigensberg and I found Lilypad Forktail (Ischnura kellicotti) in abundance on Douglas Lake, just west of Welsford in southwest New Brunswick (45.463747, -66.367387). In Canada this species is known from Ontario, but from just two locations - one in Oxford County and the other at Point Pelee. It is quite widespread in the eastern US. Like Scarlet Bluet, which was found for first time in Canada last year in southwest New Brunswick, Lilypad Forktail adults spend their time…See More

Ancistrocerus unifasciatus

I saw one of these in my Sackville yard last year and this year they are pretty common. They really seem to like the false spiraea (Sorbaria). As far as I know it's not known from elsewhere in NB, does anyone know of other records? It is known from PEI (Chris Adam's record, see http://bugguide.net/node/view/168602). I think they are associated with my neighbour's old barn, which according to the discussion at that BugGuide link is typical of…See More
