AbstractLarvae of the 2 species of Gomphaeschna are extremely similar but can be differentiated as follows: G. furcillata (Say) has 6 segmented antennae and pale dorso-lateral spots on thorax and abdomen. G. antilope Hagen has 7 segmented antennae and no pale spots. Larvae of both species live clinging to the underside of logs in Taxodium-Sphagnum swamps.
