The occurrence of Gynacantha bullata (Karsch) in Malawi is confirmed, Umma declivium Foerst., Pseudagrion bicoerulans Martin, Nepogomphoides stuhlmanni (Karsch), Neurogomphus chapini (Klots) and Onychogomphus cf. supinus Sel. are added to the national list, and the taxonomy and ecology of each of these are briefly discussed. New records for spp. sparingly documented in past accounts, and an updated checklist of the odon. fauna of Malawi (149 spp.) are provided. Some considerations on biogeographical affinities of the regional odon. assemblage are included.
