Females of Heteragrion species are rarely seen, and this is only my second observation of copula in any species. My first was H. rogertaylori in Rio de Janeiro. In both cases the formation of copula took at least a minute. Females lifted abdomen up several times, and lowered again, after failed coupling.

If you look closely, you can see small flies (I think they were feeding on the wing veins?) in a few places on the wings, but well-camouflaged. I've never seen this on clear-winged dragons before, so I wonder if darker/splotchy-winged dragons are more susceptible to this kind of parasitism?

These are the first photos ever taken of breeding behavior by this species. I had not posted them on iNat before, but they have been used in other publications about this species. The Sarracenia Spiketail (Cordulegaster sarracenia) was described new to science in 2011 by Dr. John C. Abbott and Troy D. Hibbitts. An abstract of the Zootaxa PDF article describing this new species is available at:

http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/2011/f/z02899p068f.pdf

The full article may be available on the Internet soon, but until then if you would like a copy of the article please contact me (my profile has contact info) and I will send you the PDF of it. The full article describes the original discovery of this new dragonfly and the research that has gone into this species so far. Currently, Sarracenia Spiketail is known only from five counties in east Texas and one parish in adjacent western Louisiana. The species has only been found in and around boggy areas containing the pitcher plant Sarracenia alata. This is also a very early species, with flight dates currently known between 14 March and 29 April. In 2011 they were not found after about 11 April.

I was privileged to play a small part in some of the work involved in searching for and documenting this new species at a number of locations in east Texas and western Louisiana in 2010, 2011, and 2012.
