Discovery of a Paragomphus sp in Anjouan, Comoros archipelago Decouverte dun Paragomphus sp sur lile dAnjouan Archipel des Comores Odonata, Anisoptera, Gomphidae


, : Discovery of a Paragomphus sp in Anjouan, Comoros archipelago Decouverte dun Paragomphus sp sur lile dAnjouan Archipel des Comores Odonata, Anisoptera, Gomphidae. Martinia. Decembre; 224: 183-186

During a short consulting mission on behalf of the Comorian government (form. Islamic Federal Republic, now Comorian Union), the author had the opportunity to prospect several communal water intakes. One of them located at a small dam on a "mro" (little stream) in Anjouan, supported 3 exuviae, 2 of them being immediately attributable to gomphids. After bibliographical search and inquiry to dragonfly specialists of the region, it appears that these exuviae belong to a Paragomphus sp. and are the first data concerning gomphids in the Comorian archipelago. To date, these exuviae are still not identified and could be those of a new species for science.
