Nebraska Dragonflies and Damselflies
Swift River Cruiser
Only one Cruiser has been found in Nebraska: a single larva found in Gage Co in August of 1985. This larva was identified as a Cruiser, but not identified to species. The most likely Cruiser to occur in Nebraska is the Swift River Cruiser, which should be watched for flying up and down large streams and rivers and along lake shores.
