Status:

Seepage Dancer (Argia bipunctulata) is quite atypical for the genus Argia, as it resembles a small bluet (but note lack of eyespots), and it prefers small seeps or boggy habitats with grassy vegetation. It can also sometimes utilize grassy ditches as habitat. This species can be intensely local(Paulson, 2011).

There are 152 records in the project database.
