Previously the dragonflies (Odonata, Libellulidae) Ladona julia and Nannothemis bella were known in Ohio from only one extant population each: L. julia from extreme northwest Ohio in Williams County and N. bella from west-central Ohio in Champaign County. During the summer of 2000 populations of each of these species were found in close proximity to each other at Singer Lake, a wetlands complex in southern Summit County in northeastern Ohio. This new location is also home to a population of another rare Ohio dragonfly, Dorocordulia libera (Odonata, Corduliidae) that was discovered during 1999. The Singer Lake wetlands are proving to be a very significant habitat for Ohio Odonata.
