During a seismic cruise in the Andaman region of the Indian Ocean, several dragonflies have been collected on board, when the ship was far out over the sea between the Andaman Islands and the Mergui Archipelago, about 200 km S Rangoon (Birma/Myanmar). The first observation of dragonflies took place on 28-X-1995 (14°10’N, 96° 9.5’E) during the tropical storm “Yvette”. Several Anisoptera and Zygoptera have been collected on that day. Additional Anisoptera have been caught on 27-XI-1995 (14°38’N, 95°54’E), wind force 3- -4 SE, and on 3-XII-1995 (14°38’N, 96°3’E), wind force 3 NE. Altogether 26 specimens representing 10 species have been collected: 1 Coenagrion dyeri (Fraser), 2 Ischnura senegalensis (Ramb.), I Ceriagrion cerinorubellum (Br.), 1 Pseudagrion sp., abdomen missing, 1 Orthetrum sabina (Don.), 4 Diplacodes trivialis (Ramb.), I Trithemis pallidinervis (Kirby), 2 Tramea basilaris burmeisteri (Kirby), 2 T. limbata (Desj.), and 11 Tholymis tillarga (Fabr.). T. tillarga, which is here represented with the most specimens, is well known as a migrant species (e.g. W. SCHNEIDER, 1992. Fragm. ent. 23: 243-246; H. OLSVIK & M. HÄMÄLÄINEN, 1992. Opusc. zool.flumin. 89: 1-7). Somewhat astonishing is the fact that Pantala flavescens (Fabr.) was not included in the collection.
