Banded Pennant by John Petranka

[Google images]
sciName Celithemis fasciata
mapClick on county for list of all its records for Banded Pennant
distribution Essentially statewide, though of spotty occurrence in the mountains. Likely occurs in all 100 counties, though not yet recorded from six counties (three in the mountains).
abundance Fairly common to often common in the Coastal Plain and Piedmont; fairly common in most of the mountains, but certainly rare or absent at higher elevations.
flight Most of the flight season -- late April to late September, rarely into October. The mountain flight is barely shorter.
habitat As with other pennants, it breeds at ponds and lakes, typically ones that are fairly open, frequently at man-made ponds.
behavior Males are most often seen along the margins of ponds, making short patrols out over the water. This species usually doesn't stray too far from the margins of ponds and lakes.
comments This is another of our numerous pennants, perhaps slightly less numerous than Calico and Halloween pennants, but nonetheless quite widespread in the state and not hard to find by walking around the margins of open ponds and lakes with some marshy or emergent vegetation along the shores. Oddly, Dunkle (2000) gives its abundance rangewide simply as "local", which implies some scarcity or difficulty in finding, which does not fit the case in NC.
