Paragomphus genei (Sel.), Hemianax ephippiger (Burm.) and Trithemis annulata (P. de Beauv.) in Portugal (Anisoptera: Gomphidae, Aeshnidae, Libellulidae)
Notulae odonatologicae , Volume 2 - Issue 5 p. 82- 83
The following is a brief review of the hitherto known records of these species in Portugal. Paragomphus genei — A.A. GIRARD (1893, Revta Soc. Ribeiro 2:26-45) was the first to list it from Portugal (Coniche, 11 <5, 6 $). Due to his contacts with Professor Achille Costa, Director of the Zoological Museum of Neaples, Italy, and one of the first investigators of this species, who sent him some Italian material, he was able to provide its perfect diagnosis. Although Girard’s work is not illustrated, his description does not leave any doubt as to the correct identification. A.F. DE SEABRA (1939, Publicafdes Dir. tier. Services flor. aquicol. 6; 195-1%) published a record from Soure ("July”, without exact date), while P. TESTARD (1975, Odonalologica 4: 11-26) mentioned the species from Spain. On July 15, 1984 I have taken a male (and I have seen another) at the lagoon of Vela. Dr J. Van Tol (Leiden) was kind enough to confirm the identification. The measurements (mm) of this specimen are: FW: 28.5, — HW: 26.0, — abd: 38.0. The terminalia are shown in Figure I.
