Enallagma civile - familiar bluet damselfly

The playas of the southern U.S. plains states are home to Enallagma civile, a narrowwinged damselfly sometimes known as the familiar bluet. This insect is a generalist (living in a variety of habitats and on a variety of food) and predatory. Its ability to survive in the face of rising temperatures could provide an indicator of the effects of climate change in this area. (Photo credit: Ward Upham, Kansas State University,
