Identity and distribution of the little known Aeshna meruensis (Odonata: Aeshnidae)


Status and records of Aeshna meruensis are published for the first time. This species has been confused with A. rileyi for a long time, although A.R. Waterston separated and labelled specimens of both species in the collection of the Natural History Museum, London, as early as 1974. A. meruensis is known from seven localities in East Africa so far, but the authors anticipate a wider distribution.
