Dragonflies

Dragonflies that you might hope to see in Lesbos

 John Bowers

 *Known to occur

This list is designed for use with R. R. Askew, The Dragonflies of Europe Second edition, Harley Books, 2004. The British Dragonfly Society has given English names to those species on the British list but that does not include all the species of Lesbos and attempts at creating English names in the spirit of the BDS list can lead to confusion. We therefore use the Latin names.
