LIBELLEN USA - mittlerer Westen

Auf dieser Seite stelle ich ein paar Libellenbilder meiner USA- Tour aus dem Jahre 2019 vor, die mich durch die Bundesstaaten: Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Utah und Colorado führte. Zum "mittleren Westen" gehören definitionsgemäß zwar nur die ersten drei Bundesstaaten. Da es aber eine zusammenhängende Tour war, werden die Libellensichtungen aus den anderen Bundesstaaten unter der genannten Kategorie mitgeführt.
 
Zunächst stelle ich die Großlibellen vor (auf englisch: Dragonfly), danach die Kleinlibellen (auf englisch: Damselfly). 

Die Reihenfolge ist dabei alphabetisch, wobei ich mich nach der englischen Artbezeichnung richte. Der lateinische Name steht jeweils in Klammern dazu.

Die Unterscheidung der in den USA vorkommenden Azur- und Becherjungfern (die allesamt unter der Gattungsbezeichnung "Bluet" geführt werden) ist anhand von Fotos extrem schwierig.
