Netted this one while I was trying for clubtails, which were way more wily. Beautiful dragonflies, definitely patrolling riffles like the book says.

Probably unconfirmable from this pic, but a large, red skimmer with red washes on the inner parts of the wings. Interestingly, we saw almost no odes until this showed up, and then they started emerging. Funny how time sensitive they are. How do I find them BEFORE this time, when they're resting?

Hindwing matches Petrophila confusalis, forewing doesn't seem to though.

Male and female. Despite our attempts to foster romance, it was not meant to be. Adding Barry White to list of UV lighting equipment.

BugGuide claims it looks similar to M. rhombifolium, but that species seems to lack the dark patch on the back.

Many of these large (10 mm) leafhoppers, which I was initially thinking were buprestid beetles. *facepalm*. Found this nice visual key to the group, but not seeing this one.
