Status:

Banded Pennant (Celithemis fasciata) occurs widely at lakes with sandy substrates and vegetated margins over a broad distribution in the east. Like other Celithemis, they often perch atop stalks of plants. This is a widespread dragonfly in Maryland, though generally rather uncommon (Richard Orr's The Dragonflies and Damselflies of Maryland and the District of Columbia). This species has been placed on the watch list (S3) in Maryland.

There are 181 records in the project database.
