I borrowed a number of specimens, identified and unidentified, from Nancy Adams and Oliver Flint of the United States National Museum as part of my ongoing effort to build a database of Great Plains Odonata records. Among the identified material were two species new to Kansas.
Another species reprsenting a new county record was in the unidentified material:
- Argia immunda - A voucher specimen collected by Gary F. Hevel from Cherokee County (Riverton) on 27 April, 1963 was in the collection. (Male, determined by M. Davis, 1975)
- Erythrodiplax umbrata - A male specimen, also collected by Gary Hevel, from Labette County (Oswego) on 11 July 1964. (Determined by R.W. Garrison, 1986) This is a teneral male, with only a pale wash of yellow where the black bar on the wing will develop.
- Arigomphus submedianus, collected by Gary Hevel, 31 May, 1963, in Labette County (Oswego). Male specimen.
