North American Odonata

The Odonata of North America

Dragonfly Society of the Americas

 

This list, including English names originally proposed in 1978 and now revised several times, is offered as both a current North American check-list and a list of English names. The English names were generated by Dennis R. Paulson and Sidney W. Dunkle (a few were already in use) and approved, with some modification, by the membership of the Dragonfly Society of the Americas. Common names for species recently added to the list were coined by the Common Names Committe and then the Checklist Committee of the DSA or by the original describer. The list is kept up to date with taxonomic changes, name changes, and species newly added to the fauna.
