The following notes and descriptionptions are concerned with various collections of dragonflies submitted in recent years to the National Museum, Bulawayo, by collectors in tropical Africa. Of all the species mentioned the most interesting is a new megapodagriid from East Africa, collected by Dr M. T. Gillies and submitted in a collection for identification by Dr P. Corbet. The author is particularly indebted to those entomologists who have presented material to this Museum. Firstly, Col. T. H. E. Jackson, of Kenya, whose assistant Mr B. K. Watuliki has sent many consignments from Eastern Nigeria and the Congo Republic (the former French Moyen Congo).
