Nebraska Dragonflies and Damselflies
The Spot-winged Glider resembles the Wandering Glider, with its tapered yellow abdomen, gray thorax and long broad wings. It has a dark spot at the base of the hindwing, which makes it possible to tell the two species apart in the field. It migrates along the Atlantic coast but is not as widely ranging as the Wandering Glider.
