Critical species of Odonata in Thailand and Indochina


The report provides a summary of our present knowledge of the odonate diversity (over 500 species) in the region and some general data on the habitat conservation in different countries. Thailand has the most diverse and best known odonate fauna, but knowledge of the Laotian and Vietnamese fauna has increased rapidly over the last 10 years. The conservation status of some species listed in the 1997 Action Plan is briefly discussed. No species are red-listed due to inadequate knowledge of their conservation status.
