A survey of the dragonflies of Algeria, spanning nine years, has yielded 53 species. Past records of another 10 species are believed to be genuine, making up a total of 63 species for the country. We try to clarify the status of these supplementary species and also provide information on the current distribution and present status of all recorded species.
