Odonata Central

Latest version published by Odonata Central on Sep 6, 2021 Odonata Central

This citizen science web site is focused on expanding our understanding of the distribution, biogeography, biodiversity, and identification of Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) in the Western Hemisphere. Citizen scientists are encouraged to contribute their Odonata observations to the database using a web-based interface for submission. These observations may be human observation only or may be vouchered by photographs or specimens. An expert team of vetters reviews records of the rarer species and either accepts or declines the record based on the documentation. Declined records are not uploaded to GBIF. Odonata Central was started in 2003 but older records are accepted into the database.
