oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Odonata of Fernando Po Island and of neighbouring Cameroons Territory

Volume 34, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Twenty-three species from Fernando Po and six from the neighbouring mainland are reviewed. Of the former, three species and one subspecies are confined to the island. A new species, Enallagma buchholzi, and a new subspecies, Chlorocypha cancellata insulana, are descriptionbed. The status of Umma splendida Navas is discussed, and it is suggested that a redescriptionption from the types may show close affinity to U. mesostigma (Selys). Some synonymy is indicated under the species Elattoneura pruinosa (Selys) and Africocypha lacuselephantum (Karsch). This last species exhibits remarkable polychroism.
