Dragonfly & Damselfly New World Catalog

This is a catalog of New World Odonata based on the original list published by Rosser Garrison as vol. 3(2) of Argia on 15 June 1991. Many nomenclatural changes and synonymies have taken place since that list was published. This database of the synonymic list represents many incorporations and changes. This catalog represents a complete listing for all described Odonata of North, Middle, and South America. Generic synonyms and species misidentifications are not included. The list is updated regularly, so please check back often. Please let John Abbott (jabbott1@ua.edu) know of any additions, changes, or corrections that you may notice.
