A note on the Odonata of the Channel Islands, United Kingdom
Notulae odonatologicae , Volume 1 - Issue 4 p. 75- 75
In furtherance of the Book Review by Jean BELLE (1978, Notul. odonatol. 1: 31-32) I want to make the following note: First paragraph, p. 31 Note (I): — about the finding of Sympecma fusca, Lestes barbarus, L. viridis and Crocothemis erythraea by W.J. Le Quesne in the Channel Islands. They have never been known to breed there again. In case they should be written off as a "myth", I wish to put it on record that I named them for Le Quesne in 1946 at the British Museum of Natural History, London. He was then a student on his way to college in England. He brought the adults and their exuviae to me, and told me they had been found breeding in Jersey, in some anti-tank ditches dug by the uermans during the occupation of the Channel Islands.
