Seventy nine species were recorded, of which at least six (Onychargia atrocyana Selys, 1865, Ischnura senegalensis (Rambur, 1842), Pseudagrion lalakense Orr & van Tol, 2001, Megalogomphus borneensis (Laidlaw, 1914), Agrionoptera insignis (Rambur, 1842) and Hydrobasileus croceus (Brauer, 1867)) are first records for the division, bringing the total number of Odonata known from the division to 160. Notable records include Coeliccia kenyah Dow, 2010, Teinobasis laidlawi Kimmins, 1936, Burmagomphus insularis Laidlaw, 1914, Leptogomphus sp. cf coomansi Laidlaw, 1936 and Macromia callisto Laidlaw, 1922.
