Notes on flight periods and distributions of some dragonflies in Turkey

Abstract :

In this study new data on the flight periods of 11 spp. collected during 1996, 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005-2009 years are presented. Among the species determined, Anax ephippiger (Burmeister) is the first dragonfly recorded in February in Turkey so far. In addition, new localities reported for Coenagrion scitulum (Rambur), Aeshna mixta Latreille, Anax ephippiger, Gomphus flavipes (Charpentier), Gomphus vulgatissimus (Linnaeus) and Somatochlora meridionalis Nielsen, which are poorly known from Turkey, are added to their distributional ranges
