Shadow Darner Aeschna umbrosa

True Aeschna genus member that is a late flier in our state. This one was from November and Rose found several in north Arkansas. Similar to our Springtime Darner but I doubt they overlap in flight time at all. Greenish yellow thoracic markings here are much different from the Springtime.  Note the longer wedge shaped cerci. A dusk and shade lover. They are likely far more common than they are seen. About five or six counties now in AR.

Close up of the face and thoracic striping. There is a rare female form with blue abdominal spots. This is a male face.
