A list of spp. collected during July- -August on the islands of Tutuila (American Samoa) and Upolo and Savai’i (Western Samoa) is presented. Fraser's " Ischnura complex" of Samoa, the status of Brauer’s ”Pericnemis annulata” and the nature of Anax gibbosulus Ramb. are discussed. It is not clear whether the latter represents a sibling sp. derived from A. guttatus Burnt., or it is merely a local high-altitude morph of this wide-spread lowland sp.
