ID information

The yellow patches on the flanks of the abdomen and the light stripes along the length of its legs distinguish this from the Ruddy Darter. The widely spaced anal appendages identify this as a female.

Thanks Chris for taking the time to respond to so many of my posts. Your IDs and information are invaluable in helping me prepare to display a few photos for a local Wildlife Trust event next month.
