Winter, A.-E., de, 2011. Somatochlora flavomaculata in the Eemshaven. Brachytron 14(1): 48-51. This article describes the observation of Somatochlora flavomaculata in the Eemshaven harbour area, Groningen, in the Northern part of the Netherlands on 27 June 2008. Other observations in the Northern part of the Netherlands are discussed as well as wandering individuals in the rest of the country. The species is known to wander and has even been found in the Wadden Islands. The nearest populations in the Netherlands are in swamps and peat moor areas of North-west Overijssel / Southeast Friesland, 80 km to the South and West of the Eemshaven area. The species also occurs in Northwest Germany, where in 2008 a new population was discovered in Ochsenweide, Schleswig-Holstein, a moorland that lays 50 km to the East of the Eemshaven area. Wandering Somatochlora flavomaculata individuals observed elsewhere could originate from the nearby Dutch or German populations.
