Michael Ferro and Robert W. Sites. University of Missouri-Columbia, Department of Entomology, 1-87 Agriculture Bldg, Columbia, MO

Adult and larval Odonata were collected in Thailand during May through July, 2003. Approximately 200 sites were sampled, which represented nearly the entire north/south axis of the country (approximately 18 N through 6 N). Both highland and lowland aquatic habitats (i.e., streams, waterfalls, ponds, rice paddies, and springs) were sampled, resulting in the collection of over 2,000 adult and larval specimens. Rearing of larvae and collection of teneral adults and exuviae yielded adult and larval associations. Numerous range extensions as well as biogeographical and ecological information concerning Thai Odonata is presented.
