The nymph of Somatochlora provocans Calvert, previously undescribed, is morphologically similar to the nymphs of Somatochlora elongata (Scudder), S. minor Calvert and S. walshii (Scudder). It can be distinguished from elongata by the shorter hind tibiae, from minor by the absence of a dorsal hook on abdominal segment 3, and from walshii by the median anal appendage being longer than the lateral appendages. The S. provocans nymphs were found in a small lake inlet with sphagnum-covered edges.
