Tiger Spiketail
Cordulegaster erronea Hagen in Selys, 1878
Insects

Threats [-]
Any activity that might alter groundwater seepages could impact Tiger Spiketail populations, as seepage areas are key oviposition sites (Holst 2005). Such threats might include chemical contamination from agricultural run-off, changes in dissolved oxygen content, increases in sediment load, and the building of dams (Holst 2005).

Conservation Strategies and Management Practices [-]
Any measures to reduce water contamination, agricultural run-off, siltation, and damming that would affect flow of springs and small stream seepage areas should be considered when managing for this species (Holst 2005).

Research Needs [-]
Further research is needed to define the distribution and population size of the Tiger Spiketail. In addition, research is required to understand the habitat requirements and threats to this species, and to create appropriate management guidelines for its persistence in known locations (Holst 2005).
