The two new records of Odonata reported here for Wisconsin are north- western range extensions for each species.
The genus Gomphaeschna Selys contains two species, antilope (Hagen) and furcillata (Say), the distributions of which are limited to eastern North America. Gomphaeschna antilope ranges from New Jersey west to Ohio and south to Louisiana and Florida (Needham and Westfall 1955). Gomphaeschna furcillata is similarly distributed in the south, but ranges further north, to Nova Scotia and Maine eastward, and to Michigan westward.
