[Odonata-l] extra wings?
Mon, 30 Jun 2003 08:17:28 EDT
In Vermont recently we spotted an individual with what appeared to be
vestigial butterfly wings (a bit droopy) in addition to the usual double dragonfly
wings. (Obviously, we are amateurs!) We have many dragonflies here; sometimes
when I sit quietly by the pond they sometimes land on me, and have even mated on
my forearm, but I have never seen anything like this.
Any explanations from people who know more than we do? Thanks much.
