Four-spotted Pennant

Brachymesia gravida


Four-spotted Pennants are most easily recognized by the combination of a single dark patch in the middle of each wing and a white nodal bar. It is widespread and common throughout its range with a stable population.


Preferred habitat is mostly lakes, coastal marshes, drainage canals and artificial lakes. Tolerates high alkalinity and perhaps some salinity.


Native to Florida. I found hundreds of these flying about the park today. From a distance it appears as a swarm of dragonflies.
