Amanipodagrion gilliesi was known previously only from four males collected in 1959 and 1962 in the Usambara Mountains, south-east Tanzania. Recently it has been rediscovered at two shady streams in that area. The species is not living in swamps, as previously stated, but is apparently restricted to a small area in the Amani-Sigi Forest. Data on its ecology, behaviour and reproductive habitat are presented for the first time.
