Australian Dragonflies and Damselflies: Identification Keys

The checklist below provides easy access to the keys in the Identification Guide to the Australian Odonata, written and illustrated by Gunther Theischinger and Ian Endersby, published by the DECC, NSW, and downloadable in PDF format from this address.


This checklist contains the following elements: the number of the species as per our overall checklist, its common name, its scientific name, the name(s) of the person(s) who described the species and the year of that description, and the word "Key". Clicking on the word "Key" opens up a new window with those sections of the identification keys which are relevant to the species.


Please note that all of the data in the identification key, including the text, distribution maps, and line-drawings themselves, are copyright-protected. They must not, therefore, be reproduced, republished, redistributed, modified, etc. without the express written permission from the copyright holders. Note also that the acronym DECCW, NSW underneath each key couplet stands for the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water, New South Wales.
