The dragonflies of Sri Lanka provides the first comprehensive review of the Odonata of the Indian-Ocean island of Sri Lanka. It draws together such information on taxonomy, distribution and ecology as is presently available in the published literature, such of it scattered among periodicals not easily accessible to the lay reader.The dragonflies of Sri Lanka includes complete keys to the imagines (adults) of all 117 species of dragonflies (Anis-optera) and damselflies (Zygoptera) hitherto recorded from the island. In addition, it also includes keys to and descriptions of the larval stages of many of the species.The book is intended to serve as an introduction to a more comprehensive exploration of this remarkable fauna, which includes some 52 species endemic to Sri Lanka. The fauna is far from well known, however, and future studies will undoubtedly bring several more species to light; this guide is intended to lay a foundation for future research.
