Zygoptera in Himalayan Foot Hills of Pakistan

  • In 2014, 56 localities in four provinces of Lesser Himalaya in Pakistan were studied. A total of 28 species have been recorded. A female of the data deficient, threatened species Coeliccia vacca was recorded from Charhaan. The record of Drepanosticta carmichaeli is a new addition to the list of Odonata of Pakistan, and expand the range of this species further to the west. The taxonomical status of Ischnura aurora aurora – considered common in Pakistan, following baseline literature of Fraser (1933) – now turns out to be Ischnura aurora rubilio.
