Bailowitz, Richard. Per. comm. (05-Oct-2011). “I'm including 5 additions and subtractions to the website from Arizona. The one removal is Erpetogomphus designatus. We have not been able to verify a single record for this species in the state. ; And 11 years of collecting in AZ have failed to find anything supporting an inclusion on the list. Our upcoming publication for the state will not include this species. It's just perpetuating a myth. Three of the 4 state additions are Macrothemis inacuta, Sympetrum illotum, and S. semicinctum, all of which are common. A photo of the fourth addition was sent to us two summers ago, a singleton of Coryphaeschna adnexa, found along the shore of Patagonia Lake. It's a bizarre find but nicely photographed. It's unpublished as yet but we will include it in our upcoming book.” [ back to C. adnexa, E. designatus, M. inacuta, S. illotum, S. semicinctum, ]

Bailowitz, Richard. Per. comm. (06-Oct-2011): “ Please add Argia carlcooki to the Arizona state list. It's been published but I cannot remember where.

There are no records, old or new, Nor does it really come close to the state boundary. The upcoming publication on Arizona will not include it.

The TX record is from Needham and Westfall without further justification. Strangely, according to my notes, I have a specimen from IN in my collection, and I even put it on the field guide range map, but I need to check into this; S. rubicundulum: I have specimens in my collection from NE and KS, and extended the range map in the field guide to eastern CO and eastern WY. I consider all records west of there to be internum, thus ID, MT, NV, NM, UT are likely all misidentifications; S. vicinum: WY is not substantiated." [ back to S. ambiguum, S. costiferum, S. danae, S. illotum, S. janae, S. madidum, S. pallipes, S. rubicundulum, S. vicinum ]

It is true that Fernet & Pilon (1968), Hutchinson (1977) and Hutchinson & Lartochelle (1977) reported it to be present in Quebec because found in Provancher's collection as published in 1877. But, in 1878, Provancher wrote that this was questionable because he thought that it might had been captured in Georgia (USA) and wrongly included in Quebec list. Savard (1987) is writing about this. Anyway, the species does occur in New Hampshire and New York states and should be listed only as a probable species for Quebec." [back to T. thoreyi]

He reported that O. edmundo and N. molesta occur in VA. There are no such records. I believe his error can be traced back to Carle's environmental monitoring paper.Carle lists both species for VA, but a more careful review reveals that no populations were known in the state (i.e., they were merely hypotheticals)... Paulson also discounted the WV record of D. spoliatus.

Tennessen, Ken. per. comm (20-Aug-1999) " . I can find no record of O. rupinsulensis in AL or GA prior to Bick's N.A. list. I wonder if he might have made a blunder by considering the synonymy of O. carolinus with rupinsulensis by Frank Carle straight up. Let me explain further: both AL and GA were listed under O. carolinus in the old Manual. When Carle synonymized carolinus, this was based on the nymph only. (Hagen, in 1885, established carolinus based on a nymph from KY; Carle examined it and det. it as rup.) Workers erroneously identified southern specimens of Ophio. as carolinus, but in fact they belong to an unnamed species. Therefore none of the adult records of carolinus should be attributed to rup. (which I think George Bick might have done), as Carle gave the "carolinus" adults a new name, incurvatus. As far as the known distribution of rupinsulensis goes, I have seen it in TN only as far south as the Duck River (Marshall and Maury counties). This area S of Nashville is not montaine; in fact it is very flat, and is in the Central Basin. A long time ago, I saw a larva from the Elk River just south of the TN/AL line; the site was actually in Limestone County, AL. However, I can not find the specimen, and am reluctant to base any new state record on a larva, especially with such a difficult genus. I have always wanted to go to the Elk R. and look for it, but as yet have not taken the time. Anyway, O. rupinsulensis should not be listed for either AL or GA, to my knowledge. .."[back to O. rupinsulensis ]

The O. edmundo allotype is either an undescribed subspecies or sister species of O. susbehcha! I have discussed this situation with Mike May ....Tim C. and I question the following Illinois records. Somatochlora filosa- No known IL specimens. Walsh (1862) had a Somatochlora female that he thought must be eitherS. tenebrosa or S. filosa. This may be the original source for this record; However, we have examined an adult male from Indiana housed at the Field Museum. It is a reliable record from a well known entomologist. Probably a vagrant. " [ back to O. edmundoS. filosa ]

Vogt, Tim & Tim Cashatt. Per. Comm. (07-Oct-1999). " We have additional information that may be helpful. Tim Cashatt and I have specimens housed at the Illinois State Museum, some of which are unpublished state records. These include Cordulegaster bilineata (IL), Cordulegaster erronea (IL), Cordulegaster maculata (MO), Somatochlora provocans (MO), Dythemis velox (IL), Leucorrhinia frigida (IL), and Libellula flavida (IL). Also, C. bilineata and C. erronea are reported from IL in a paper that deals primarily with Tachopteryx thoreyi (McPheron and Schiff, 1989). A Cordulegaster diastatops adult male from northeastern IL is housed at the Illinois Natural History Survey. Webb et al. (1986) discuss this specimen. Bill Smith and I collected an exuvia of Neurocordulia yamaskanensis from the Ohio River in Pope County, IL. This specimen  is in Bill Smith's collection. Although Tim C. and I know of no known (IL) specimens for Gomphus (Gomphurus) lineatifrons, it may be more appropriate to question its presence in IL rather than to remove it from the list altogether. Especially since it is known from IN, KY, MO, and WI. It was reported from IL in Needham and Westfall (1955). For reasons somewhat similar to those mentioned for G. (G.) lineatifrons, it may be more appropriate to question the presence of  Somatochlora filosa for MO than to remove it from the list altogether. Although the adult male specimen can not be found at this time, it seems unlikely that Williamson (1932) would have misidentified an adult male (because of the distinctive cerci). Also, George Harp has collected two adult males from a locality 25 km from MO. One specimen was collected in 1980 and the other in 1985. Although it may have been a vagrant, the adult male from Indiana housed at the Field Museum represents a valid record. It was collected in July 4, 1911 by William J. Gerhard (a well known and respected entomologist of his time). The locality is Mineral Point, IN, (Kosciusko County), 41 19' 34", 85 44'39" W. Gerhard included the Lat/Long on his data label. Sympetrum danae was first reported from IL in Walker and Corbet (1975). Tim and I do not know on what basis it was listed from IL. To date we have not seen any IL specimens. Its presence in IL probably should be questioned until a specimen is collected or discovered. The presence of Gomphus (Gomphurus) crassus in IL seems plausible. However, once again, Tim and I are unaware of any IL specimens. Needham and Westfall (1955) do not list it from IL..." [back to G. crassus, G.

White, Hal  Per. Comm. (18-Mar-2005). “I looked at the distribution lists you have posted with respect to Delaware. I have several additions and possible deletions for DE. I have good voucher specimen records for: Lestes eurinus, Argia translata, Nehalennia integricollis, Telebasis byersi. The following I do not have records for in Delaware: Argia sedula - I have listed this based on an old record by Beatty but I have not been able to find the species in the state. It should be here but I would appreciate a confirmation from a documented source, Otherwise it deserves a question mark. Enallagma hageni - I know of no records for this species in Delaware. Nehallenia irene - I reported this about 30 years ago but I suspect it was integricollis. At a time that I didn't know integricollis. I need to look at the specimen again. Thus this is a questionable species at the moment in my mind.” [back to A. sedula, A. translata, E. hageni, N. integricollis, N. Irene, T. byersi, L. eurinus ]
