The Giant Hawaiian Darner, also called the “Giant Hawaiian Dragonfly” is one of only two endemic species of dragonfly found on the Hawaiian Islands.  It is more commonly found at higher elevations.  With a wingspan measuring approximately six inches (15 cm), this is the largest dragonfly that can be found in the United States.
