Description

To my knowledge, this is the first record of this species that has been confirmed by an image in the Canadian Maritimes. The only other record of this species accepted by ADIP (the Atlantic Dragonfly Inventory Project headed by Paul Brunelle) was of a sight record by Karl Dexter on June 26th, 1995 in Saint John County, New Brunswick.
For the record, this species was observed by Jim Bell, Rebecca McCluskey, and Denis Doucet. The species was also observed by Daniel Sinclair and Evan Houlahan on the previous day in the same location, but they were unable to capture it. Duplicate observations on iNaturalist are as follows: https://inaturalist.ca/observations/126749394 and https://inaturalist.ca/observations/126819592. Location accurate to within 15 m

EDIT: See comments below. There was a sighting in 1995 by Karl Dexter in Saint John area. I had originally posted above but have removed the following:
1st confirmed record of Comet Darner in Atlantic Canada.
These are 1st images confirming one in Atlantic far as I know.

UPDATE: It's a tortisebeetle, but would love to know what kind. They are loving the potato plants in the compost pile.

OK folks, this little fella almost didn't catch my eye - I assume it's a larval something. There were a few on the potato plants that have grown from the compost pile, and they appear to make hats for themselves using either their poop or crud from the compost pile. I think actually it's their poop, because their butt is arched up around toward their back. it took me a little while to actually notice the first one, and then eventually I found that there were many more. There were a few tortise beetles in the vicinity also. But yeah, google lens thinks this is algae - I have to think that the camouflage this critter has chosen is working, even on AI.
