Some Trinidad Dragonflies That can be Identified on the Wing
Keywords:Trinidad, Dragonflies, Odonata
Twenty-five species of dragonflies are presented here and represent the much broader range of local species. The selected types, it is hoped, represent (in a general way) the range of sizes, colour patterns and forms found in this group. Also included are a few species that, because of their conspicuous or unusual design, will be certain to attract attention should they cross one's path. Finally, one or two have been chosen in the interest of scientific completeness, in case they are found (and recognized as not conforming to any of the more common families).
