Dragonflies and Damselflies

This page is part of a biological survey of Peabody Park at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Initials of determiners and locations of grid sections are explained on the references page.

There are perhaps a dozen species of dragonflies and damselflies in Peabody Park, but they have not been studied. This group would make an excellent research project for an interested biology student. The earliest adults can be found in the Park fields in the first week in April.

  1. CALOPTERYGIDAE — Broad-winged Damselflies

    1. Calopteryx maculata — Black Prince, Black-winged Damselfly

      Common along Park streams in summer, usually in shaded areas (RJO, August 2000). [Images…]
