oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A Contribution towards the systematics of dragonflies of Southern Africa (Odonata)

Volume 26, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



This communication presents results of studies on the systematics of dragonflies of Southern Africa. It contains descriptionptions of several new species and subspecies, and remarks on a few other species, where I have been able to supplement or correct the original descriptionptions. I have paid special attention to the genus Pseudagrion Selys, which contains the most species of all African genera. The work on this genus is, in part, a continuation of my previous study of the thoracic structures, as suitable characters for distinguishing the females in this genus (Balinsky, 1957).
