Remarks. This well-known species was described in detail by Calvert (1902, 1907). It has been recorded from Honduras (Atlántida Dept., about 25 km west of Tela, small streams in forest {15°37' N, 87°37' W, 700 m}, 9 March 1990, Sidney W. Dunkle leg [FSCA]) south through Bolivia (Santa Cruz Department, Japacani River {17°20' S, 63°15' W}), and east to Venezuela and Acre State in Brazil (Porto Acre, Igarapé Piancó, Reserva Florestal Humaitá (9°45'02" S, 67°40'19" W). Two males from La Chorrera, Panama identified by Kirby (1899) as Argia tinctipennis Selys  and later thought to possibly represent A. indicatrix  by Calvert (1902) represent A. adamsi  . These two males were made available on loan through the courtesy of Dr. Benjamin Price; they had no determination labels but we have added determination labels to both specimens.

This is a highly variable species throughout its range as indicated by the terminal abdominal patterns for males (Figs. 36–42). Males from the western side of the Andes in Ecuador (Manabí, Pichincha and Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas Provinces, Figs. 11View FIGURES 9–13, 44, 144) are paler than those from the eastern side (but see below) and differ in having S8 entirely black (Fig. 41) whereas varying amounts of blue are present on this segment in specimens from elsewhere as shown (Figs. 36–40, 42). The overall pale coloration in the western Ecuadorean specimens is light blue ( Figs. 11View FIGURES 9–13, 44, 144) and contrasts with the darker blue typical of more easterly populations ( Fig. 12View FIGURES 9–13, 43, 143). The wings are also slightly amber colored but this condition is present in some populations from elsewhere in Central America. The antehumeral stripe also possesses a yellow cast differing from the remaining pale blue coloration but we have seen males from Costa Rica ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 9–13) and Panama that are similarly marked. The most consistent difference occurs in the shape of the appressed lateral lobe at the base of the terminal segment of the genital ligula; bluntly linear in specimens west of the Andes ( Fig. 90View FIGURES 89–93), with tip broadly spatulate in material occurring in Central America and South America east of the Andes ( Figs. 91a, cView FIGURES 89–93). The late L. K. Gloyd considered A. adamsi  from Ecuador west of the Andes to represent a new species to which she had applied the manuscript name A. " lorena." However we have found no significant differences in the male caudal appendages ( Figs. 104, 105View FIGURES 103–106) or in the female mesostigmal plates ( Figs. 70, 71View FIGURES 69–72). The contrasting differences between western and eastern populations of A. adamsi  indicated above do not seem to be greater than variability within material we have examined throughout its range in Central America and South America east of the Andes. Accordingly, we do not believe that a new name should be applied to specimens from western Ecuador.

Through the courtesy of William Haber, we were also able to examine a male from Pichincha Province (road to Silanche Bird Sanctuary, stream 1 km north of highway, rock and gravel bottom, 5 km northwest of Pedro Vicente Maldonado) determined as " Argia  sp. J". It differs from other western Ecuadorean populations noted above by having a dark purple instead of pale blue coloration but is otherwise characteristic of populations of A. adamsi  (amber colored wings, identical genital ligula and appendage morphology) from Ecuador west of the Andes. Due to its unusual purple coloration, we first misidentified this species as the more northerly but closely related A. ulmeca Calvert  which required us to further study these two species. We have found males of A. adamsi  to differ from those of A. ulmeca  by the following characters: outer branch of cercus in dorsal view a blunt lobe, with a broad and shallow U-shaped cleft defined between the unequal branches, Figs. 104b, 105bView FIGURES 103–106 (outer branch relatively longer and forming a narrow and deep U-shaped cleft between unequal branches in A. ulmeca  , Figs. 122b, dView FIGURES 119–122, 123–126View FIGURES 123–127); appressed lateral lobe of genital ligula broadly spatulate ( Fig. 91aView FIGURES 89–93) to narrowly digit-like ( Fig. 90aView FIGURES 89–93) in A. adamsi  (appressed lateral lobe terminating as a narrow spine-like process in A. ulmeca  , Fig. 102cView FIGURES 98–102). This male is the first known specimen of A. adamsi  whose pale coloration is purple instead of blue. Although both A. adamsi  and A. ulmeca  occur together in Central America, A. adamsi  largely replaces A. ulmeca  in South America; we have seen a few records for A. ulmeca  as far south as Tolima Department (Mariquita, San Juan River) in central Colombia. The mesostigmal lobes for both species ( A. adamsi  : Figs. 70, 71View FIGURES 69–72; A. ulmeca  : Figs. 85–88View FIGURES 84–88) are similar and remarkably variable but the characters given by Calvert (1907; labrum black, 3 postquadrangular cells in Hw in A. adamsi  ; labrum pale, 4 postquadrangular cells in Hw in A. ulmeca  ) do serve to differentiate between these two species.
