Habitat [-]
The Midland Clubtail inhabits medium to large, moderate to rapid-flowing rivers and streams with sandy and muddy substrate. They are also found in and around large lakes with emergent vegetation (Dunkle 2000, Nikula et al. 2003). Larvae are aquatic and found in the water during this lifestage, whereas adults are terrestrial and are found in habitats surrounding streams and lakes.
