Thanks John, perhaps I changed one and forgot to change the other, it happens. I'll remove them both based on your possibility.

You've mixed a Ruddy Darter vernacular with a Red-veined Darter binomial. Easily done! :)

Either way, this looks red all over with a somewhat wide abdomen so my suspicion (not strong enough for an id) is that it might be a Broad Scarlet/Scarlet Darter (Crocethemis erythraea).
