A Distribution of Louisiana Odonates

In Odonata on April 2, 2013 at 2:01 pm

Many dedicated “Bug Nerds” have been doing some wonderful work in documenting the odonate (dragonfly and damselfly) species to be found in Louisiana.  Foremost among this group is Bill Mauffray, whose 1997 study and recent updates form the basis for most of the information available on Bayou State odes.

In addition, nearly a dozen rabid collectors have waded the swamps, lakes and bayous to expand the scope of Louisiana Odonatology, collecting and photographing specimens and sharing their data with other enthusiasts.

 I have completely reworked my recent Distribution of Louisiana Odonates, incorporating all the information from Bill Mauffray’s 1997 Bulletin of American Odonotology paper, plus additional information found in the records of Odonata Central.  Please use this information in any non-commercial manner you find useful.  The information is current through December 18, 2012.
