Dragonflies and damselflies (Insecta: Odonata) from a Cerrado area at Triângulo Mineiro, Minas Gerais, Brazil

Abstract: Odonata is considered, among the aquatic insect orders, the second largest group in number of species. Its global richness is estimated in about 6,000 described species. The Brazilian richness represents around 14% of the world's odonatofauna, however, the knowledge on Brazilian dragonflies distribution is still poor. This study purpose an inventory of the dragonflies species present in aquatic habitats from a Preserved Area according to the Brazilian Forest Code, located in the Cerrado biome at Triângulo Mine… Show more

“…The diversity pattern of odonate families here observed was analogous to previous studies. The higher diversity of Libellulidae and Coenagrionidae (which added up to almost 80% of the species in the study area) was also detected in southeastern and central Brazil (Souza et al 2013;Vilela et al 2016;Koroiva et al 2017; Borges et al 2019) as well as in other studies conducted in Rio Grande do Sul (Pires et al 2013;Renner et al 2016a, b). These results corroborate the findings that Libellulidae and Coenagrionidae are the most speciose families of Odonata in the Neotropical Region (Kalkman et al 2008 The dominant genera in the study area also followed previously observed patterns.…”

“…Nonetheless, a new species of the family Libellulidae was found at this site: Erythrodiplax ana Guillermo-Ferreira & . A new species was also found by a recent study at Fazenda Nova Monte Carmelo in the Triângulo Mineiro Region; a species of the genus Tigriagrion (Coenagrionidae), which is currently being described (Borges et al, 2019). These data suggest that this relatively unexplored area of the Cerrado is likely to possess yet additional new odonate species.…”

“…Reported values for odonate species richness in the Cerrado biome range from 26 to 85 (Ferreira-Peruquetti & Fonseca-Gessner, 2003;Almeida et al, 2013;Calvão et al, 2014;Dutra & De Marco, 2015;Vilela et al, 2016;Souza et al, 2017;Klein et al, 2018;Borges et al, 2019). Considering that studies reporting higher species richness in the Cerrado were done at larger sites with larger 8,9,10,11,14,15,16,17,21,23,24,25,29,35,36,37 Erythrodiplax castanea (Burmeister, 1839) 9,11,13,14,15,16,17,18,22,23,24,25,33,35,36 Erythrodiplax juliana Ris, 1911 9,10,11,13,15,16,17,23,35 Erythrodiplax latimaculata Ris, 1911 X X 99 UB20180011 MG, BA, RJ, SP, AM, MT,MS,CE,GO 11,13,14,15,1...…”
