A collection of adult specimens made during a hydrobiological mission (5-23 Oct. 2004) to the French Pacific Island Territories of Wallis and Futuna is studied. It constitutes the first odon. inventory from this archipelago, and is composed of 10 spp. (B Anisoptera, 2 Zygoptera), all of which were known from the Pacific before. Pacific island material of Ischnura a. aurora (Brauer, 1865) is compared with specimens from the western part of the range of this species. These represent a good ssp., I. a. rubilio Selys, 1876. Furthermore, 2 new synonyms of I. aurora are proposed.
