Record Details

Species Tramea onusta (Red Saddlebags)
Specimen Notes This was a first time record for me. It was a male Red Saddlebags with bright red eyes above, bright red face, reddish-brown thorax, bright red abdomen with small black spots on the topside of S8-9. Basal wing veins red with red broadsaddle saddlebags and seemed to have no problem perching for photos unlike the Black Saddlebags. I did not collect the specimen, preferring to take photos instead as proof of sighting and I have attached a photo of the male Red Saddlebags to this report.
