– Occasional collections in 14 islands brought about 130 specimens belonging to 16 spp., II genera and 3 families. As expected, the most wide ranging species belong to strong fliers of the suborder Anisoptera. Pantala hymenaea and P. flavescens were the most widespread spp., occurring at 8 and 6 islands, respectively. P. flavescens was the only sp. recorded from Isla Clarion, the farthest Mexican island.
