Status:

Atlantic Bluet (Enallagma doubledayi) is a characteristic species of sandy-bottomed coastal plain ponds. It is nearly identical to Familiar Bluet (E. civile) in general pattern, and is best identified in the hand (Lam, 2004). In Maryland, there are recent records from a dredge spoil site in Baltimore County, and from a handful of sites in Wicomico County, plus historic records from two others (Richard Orr's Dragonflies and Damselflies of Maryland and the District of Columbia). It is considered S1 (highly state rare).

There are 19 records in the project database.
