Martha's Pennant (Celithemis martha) is a primarily coastal, northeastern species, restricted to three coastal plain counties in Maryland. It apparently has hybridized with Ornate Pennant (Celithemis ornata) at a site in Anne Arundel Co. where both species occurred (Richard Orr's The Dragonflies and Damselflies of Maryland and the District of Columbia). This species is ranked as S1 (highly state rare).

There are 16 records in the project database.
