Zoosporic fungi growing on dead dragonflies (Odonata)

The mycoflora developing on dead specimens of 11 species of dragonfly, collected while floating on the water surface, was investigated under laboratory conditions. Sixty-six zoosporic fungus species were found to grow on the fragments of dragonfly investigated, including 15 Chytridiomycetes and 51 Oomycetes. Of these 66 species, 18 are known as parasites or necrotrophs of

The impact of forestry on dragonfly diversity in Central Sweden

A survey of 32 lakes for dragonfly larvae, aquatic plants and forestry regime in the surrounding boreal forests was performed. The highest diversity was found in undisturbed forests. Lakes rich in aquatic plants were shown also to be rich in dragonflies. A rich plant community is proposed to provide a wider range of microhabitats thereby…

To stay or not to stay: Decision-making during territorial behaviour of Calopteryx haemorrhoidalis and Calopteryx splendens splendens (Zygoptera: Calopterygidae)

The effect of copulation and presence of predators on territorial behaviour of male Calopteryx haemorrhoidalis (in southern France) and of male C. splendens splendens (in northern Germany) was studied in nature. A male obtaining a copulation early in the day often secured more copulations later that day than did males not obtaining an early copulation….

A contribution to the study of Algerian Odonata

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…

The family-group names baed on Selys’ Légions

It recently was suggested that family-group names derived from the names of Selys’ legions are not valid. I state why I believe this view is mistaken and I argue that, even if it were not, nomenclatural stability in Odonata can be better served by the preservation of these names than by their overturn.

Epallagidae versus Euphaeidae revisited

The author’s previous rejection of Selys’ legions as available family-group taxa is restated and elaborated, strictly based on the provisions of the International Rules of Zoological Nomenclature (4th ed.).
