Current topics in dragonfly biology. Vol. 2
Rapid communications , Volume 6 - Issue 1 p. 1- 32
CORBET: Our first topic is one which I expect we can deal with fairly quickly. I should like to ask if anyone has encountered additional examples of dragonflies breeding in small containers, as a sequel to our discussion of this subject at Calgary in 1983. New examples crop up from time to time: for example Roger Kitching has recently discovered the hitherto undescribed larva of Lyriothemis cleis in water collecting in the stumps of palm trees in Sulawesi. LEGRAND: Some years ago in Africa, in Gabon to be precise, I encountered a tree-hole species called Hadrothemis camarensis. So I bred it from the egg and I did some work on it. The species can be found to the Ivory Coast where I think its ecology would be the same.
