Familiar Bluet

Enalagma civile


The Familiar Bluet is one of the brightest of blue damselflies. Males have blue around their eyes which matches the blue on the thorax. A thick black line runs down the middle of the thorax and is flanked by two thinner lines. The long, slender abdomen is mostly blue also with dashes of black near the end of each segment. Females have similar body shape and markings, but the blue is replaced with light brown.


Spotted on Tamarac NWR at the Chippewa Picnic area. Familiar Bluet spends part of their life under water, nearby water source is essential in order to sustain a population.
