oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Notes on African Odonata nymphs

Volume 22, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



As in the case with many other insect groups, far more has been written about the appearance and habits of adult Odonata than about the early stages. As far as endemic African species are concerned, valuable work has been done on the dragonfly nymphs by Barnard and Corbet; and we know a little about some species through the more occasional work on certain nymphs of the African species by Fraser, Longfield and other specialists. Nymphs of a few of the more widespread migrants have been descriptionbed in other continents.
