Horned Clubtail
Arigomphus cornutus (Tough, 1900)

Threats [-]
Land use practices which might damage shoreline vegetation and floating/emergent vegetation at breeding waters could make the habitat less suitable. Also, run-off from surrounding lands that might lead to lower dissolved oxygen, such as fertilizers, could also reduce favorable larval conditions.

Conservation Strategies and Management Practices [-]
Practices such as natural forested buffers that promote shoreline integrity and healthy stands of native emergent and floating vegetation should serve to benefit populations of this species.

Research Needs [-]
Suitable habitats in Jefferson County and further to the east in the lowlands of Franklin and Clinton Counties should be surveyed to determine if this species is actively expanding its range.
