Species excluded from our European checklist

The Field Guide to the Dragonflies and Damselflies of Britain and Europe (Dijkstra, Schröter & Lewington, 2020), Europe's Dragonflies (Smallshire & Swash, 2020), and the Atlas of the European Dragonflies and Damselflies (Boudot & Kalkman (eds.), 2015) all include a number of species and subspecies which - for a variety of reasons - we have excluded from our European checklist. For additional updates to the list below we would like to thank Jean-Pierre Boudot and Cyrille Deliry for their input and feedback.

A few photographs of some of the species listed above (i.e those formatted in bold) can be seen on the ExtraPix page.
