Hello What’s That Bug,
I have a photo of a damselfly that I can’t identify – it doesn’t look like any phase of the Eastern forktail damselfly that I know of – and the image doesn’t seem to match other species either. Do you know what this species of damselfly is?

Hi Noah,
Damselfly identification to the species level can be very challenging.  We are posting your lovely photo and inviting our readers to assist in the correct identification.  It is getting late and we still have to grade some student work.
