Hine’s Emerald Dragonfly

Our group is working to determine the survey effort required to detect the federally endangered Hine’s Emerald Dragonfly.

During the flight season for adults, visual surveys are performed at set locations for randomly determined lengths of time, at varied times of the day. All dragonflies observed are recorded.

In 2018, we conducted 120 surveys at a location known to have Hine’s Emerald Dragonflies.
