|NEW WILDLIFE SPECIES COVERAGE
Added several new dragonfly and damselfly species and significantly expanded existing species coverage. A newly discovered Spiketail Dragonfly cordulegaster ssp. which is just being described in the scientific literature, has been added to my Dragonflies whose Common Name start with S-Z image gallery. UPDATE: This species has been named Sarracenia spiketail cordulegaster sarracenia, and is now described in the scientific literature-you can read the abstract at Cordulegaster sarracenia abstract. Also added images of The Masked Clubskimmer Dragonfly brechmorhoga pertinax species from Arizona. The masked clubskimmer has only been seen twice before in the United States and never before in Arizona. Also added images of The Slender Clubskimmer Dragonfly brechmorhoga praecox species from Arizona. The slender clubskimmer is also new to Arizona. They have also been added to my Dragonflies whose Common Name starts with A-E image gallery.
