I need some help on this Gomph. Some of the abdomenal pattern matches a female Stillwater Clubtail, but S7-S9 don't.

Damselflies are so small you never notice them unless you are looking for them. They come in lots of sparkly colors and look like tiny flying jewels.
Is this an olive form female Rambur's Forktail or female citrine?

Laura's Clubtail Stylurus laurae

Description

At a culvert over a small creek on Liberty Road just NW of int w C C Bridge Rd.

I was driving down Liberty Road on my way back to the 'Emerald Triangle' on C C Bridge Road for an afternoon of Emerald photography. As I passed over the creek, I glanced down over the road as I passed. I saw a Clubtail of some kind land on an overhanging plant and thought 'that was an odd looking Black-shouldered Spinyleg'... I stopped quickly and walked back, managing to creep up and get a few photos of the tail before getting a full body view. However, as soon as I saw the tail I knew it was a male Laura's Clubtail! Right after I got a full body photo good enough for an ID, it flew straight up into a tree. I had my camera set to burst mode for photographing Emeralds and by chance managed to catch it as it flew off.

This is a new county record and major range extension for this species.

A habitat photo is also included. The stream is a deeply shaded with some small riffles of small gravel. This is very similar to the habitat where I saw this species in Big Creek last month. My guess is that the male was making patrolling forays from this grapevine and I happened to see it land.

@greglasley @briangooding @jcabbott

A new species for the WMA, and a significant range extension to the NW of this rare Clubtail species. This is my first time seeing the species. It flew in to perch on a grass clump in tall reeds and grasses in an area with lots of feral hog trails. Unfortunately, all my photos are from a similar angle because I was trying to photograph through grass clumps without disturbing it.

This is definitely one of the larger TX clubtails! I first thought it was a Black-shouldered Spinyleg when it flew in, but quickly realized it was something I'd never seen before.

As a side note, I suspect that a large male clubtail that I saw flying low and briefly perching on sunny sticks just above the water and in a deeply shaded portion of Catfish Creek on the north end of the WMA may have been this species. I assumed it was a Black-shouldered Spinyleg at the time, but noticed that the thorax seemed very 'bright' for that species. Unfortunately, I was unable to photograph that individual.
