On 21 to 25 January 2001, my wife and I collected and photographed Odonata in and around Murchison Falls. The list of what we found is below. The weather was hot and dry, and, aside from the Nile River and Lake Albert, there were few aquatic habitats. Only the small Sambiya R. in the Park was flowing very slightly. A wet-season river at the Rabongo Forest was reduced to a series of muddy pools. The placement of F.C. FRASER’s (1928, Trans, ent. Soc. Land. 70: 123-138) Copera subaequistyla (= sikassoensis [Martin]) in Platycnemis is mysterious. I can find few differences between this species and the SE Asian Copera vittata (Sel.), and I regard Fraser’s generic placement as correct.
