Odonates of Karimganj District of Assam

At the Makunda Nature Club, we were privileged to work with may subject experts. One of them was Shantanu Joshi, an odonatologist. I sent him photographs of a rare odonate, Nannophyopsis clara, which I had taken in Makunda. At that time, its known distribution was only in Taiwan - later it was found in other countries, including Thailand.

He visited us at Makunda and along with Rejoice Gassah from our Club, we did an extensive search for odonates in our areas of biodiversity documentation.

This exercise led to a checklist of 97 species of odonates (dragonflies and damselflies). We described these with detailed reports of 8 species, four new to India Ceriagrion calamineum, Nannophyopsis clara, Phyllothemis eltoni, and Zyxomma breviventre, and four noteworthy species newly recorded from the state: Megalogomphus smithii, Orientogomphus indicus, Pseudothemis zonata, and Sarasaeschna khasiana.
