Familiar Bluet is a widespread and common Damselfly of Southern
the Imperial Valley. They can be found near most canals or bodies
of freshwater. They hold their wings down over their body and
their abdomen is more blue than black (males), unlike some dancers
that may be similarly colored. Females can be a little trickier
but generally they have the same pattern without as much blue or
very little blue. Here in the Imperial Valley, the only damsel I
have seen that is similar is Blue-ringed Dancer which holds the
wings above the body.
The New River Wetlands
a very good location.
