Dear All,
Yesterday I found five or six S. ambiguum (no mature males) along one 
stretch of a wooded trail.  Perched just about eighteen inches from one of 
them was another Sympetrum that I feel was a female vicinum; is it normal 
for two closely-related species of Sympetrum to occupy the same habitat and 
perch so closely?

Best regards,
