5 March 2011

For the weekend I went to north-eastern Victoria once more, looking for dragonflies before the season peters out. At Wangaratta, where in late January I saw a new dragonfly (for me), I found several Austrogomphus cornutus (Unicorn Hunter) — another new species for me.

Later in the day I stopped by a creek and possibly saw Hemigomphus heteroclytus (Stout Vicetail). I've thought I've seen these before and I'm not really sure if the ones photographed below are this species either as they are very similar to the Southern Vicetail, which is more common in Victoria.
