  • Title
    Diversity of two families Libellulidae and Coenagrionidae (Odonata) in Regional Institute of Education Campus, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Libellulidae and Coenagrionidae are the most dominant families among dragonflies and damselflies. The present study deals with the diversity, occurrence and present status of libellulids and coenagrionids within the Regional Institute of Education Campus in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India (RIEC). The major objectives of this study are to prepare a preliminary checklist of libellulids and coenagrionids species in the RIEC and to find out the status and distribution of genera and species in their respective families. This study is also aimed at systematic planning for developing different strategies for conservation of odonates in the campus. During this study a total of 24 species have been recorded out of which 20 species belong to the family Libellulidae representing 15 genera and four species belong to the family Coenagrionidae representing four genera. The findings of this study are based on the survey which was carried out for a period of four months in 2015.

  • Title
    Odonata (Insecta) diversity of Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, the southern Western Ghats, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    A study was conducted at Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Idukki District, Kerala, the southern Western Ghats, to assess the diversity of odonates. We report 48 species of odonates, which include 31 species of Anisoptera (dragonflies) and 17 species of Zygoptera (damselflies). Among the dragonflies, the family Libellulidae dominated with 25 species, while Coenagrionidae with seven species was the dominant family among the damselflies. The odonate diversity of Chinnar WS accounted for 31.16 % of the odonates in Kerala and 27.58% of the odonates of the Western Ghats. Chinnar also recorded two species of odonates that are endemic to the Western Ghats, which are, the Pied Reed Tail Protosticta gravelyi and the Travancore Bamboo Tail Esme mudiensis.

  • Title
    Range extension of Microgomphus souteri Fraser, 1924 (Insecta: Odonata: Gomphidae) to northern Western Ghats, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    During opportunistic surveys conducted at Collem (Goa), a specimen of male Microgomphus souteri Fraser 1924 was collected on 14th September 2013. Another male specimen was collected on 28th June 2014. Microgomphus souteri Fraser 1924 is recorded for the first time in northern Western Ghats and is a new record for Goa. Type specimen was described from Coorg (Karnataka) and was later recorded from Kerala. The discovery of this species in Goa has expanded its range to the north of the Western Ghats. With this discovery currently 88 species of Odonata are now known from the state.

  • Title
    Odonata larvae of Keibul Lamjao National Park, Manipur, northeastern India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Odonata larvae were collected from Keibul Lamjao National Park, Manipur, northeastern India during 2009-2011. The study recorded 15 species of Odonata larvae belonging to the anisopteran families Aeshnidae, Libellulidae and zygopteran families Calopterigidae, Lestidae and Coenagrionidae. The study revealed that there is a need for a detailed study of Odonata fauna of the national park as thorough knowledge of the important species of a conservation area is very essential for proper management.

  • Title
    A preliminary checklist of odonates in Kerala Agricultural University (KAU) campus, Thrissur District, Kerala, southern India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    A study was conducted to document the species diversity of Odonata (Insecta) of the Kerala Agricultural University (KAU) campus, Thrissur, Kerala, southern India. A total of 52 species including 36 species of Anisoptera (dragonflies) and 16 species of Zygoptera (damselflies) were recorded during the one year long study. The study reported two Near Threatened species such as Heliogomphus promelas and Indothemis carnatica.

  • Title
    Dragonflies and damselflies (Insecta: Odonata) of Nagaland, with an addition to the Indian odonate fauna
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    We surveyed odonates in the districts of Kohima, Peren and Wokha in the state of Nagaland, northeastern India, during April and May 2012 and May 2013.  We recorded 69 species, including 43 additions to the known odonates of Nagaland, and one addition—Calicnemia erythromelas Selys, 1891—to the Indian odonate fauna. The known odonate fauna of Nagaland now consists of 90 species in 53 genera and 14 families.  We also describe for the first time the female of Coeliccia schmidti, and partially, a heterochromatic form of the female Ischnura mildredae.

  • Title
    Additions to the Odonata (Insecta) of Goa
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The study reports the results from surveys for Odonates in the State of Goa over 19 months during 2007-2008. A total of 66 species of Odonates were documented with 34 new species records from the State. The present study has resulted in an increase of 47.30% in the number of species reported from Goa to 74 from the existing 39. Family Libellulidae dominated the odonate community with 32 species followed by Coenagrionidae with 14 species. Orthetrum sabina was the most abundant species while seven species were documented only once during the survey period. More survey effort are needed to completely document the odonate species diversity of the state.

  • Title
    Abundance and diversity of Odonata in temporary water bodies of Coimbatore and Salem districts in Tamil Nadu
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Odonata diversity was assessed in 13 temporary water bodies of Coimbatore and Salem districts in Tamil Nadu. Assessment revealed the presence of 21 species of Odonata (14 species of Anisoptera and seven species of Zygoptera) belonging to 17 genera under four families. Libellulidae (Anisoptera) was represented by the maximum number of species and individuals. Pantala flavescens (Libellulidae) was the most abundant among 21 species. Among the temporary water bodies, the maximum number of individuals as well as species was recorded from Utkulam tank (Coimbatore district). Odonata diversity was higher in Kamalapuram tanks 1 and 2 (Salem district) and lower in Ukkadam tank (Coimbatore District). Diplacodes trivialis (Rambur), Orthetrum sabina (Drury) and Pantala flavescens (Fabricius) were identified as temporary water body specialists because of their presence in all the 13 temporary water bodies sampled.
