The Dragonflies of Stanley Park

Twelve species from three families have been recorded in our dragonfly survey.
Although the term dragonfly can be used to refer to all species in the order odonata
we use the term "true dragonflies" to refer to the larger darners and skimmers and
damselflies for the smallest members of the odonata.

[Note: family names end in the sufix idae ]

Darners Aeshnidae

Damselflies Coenagrionidae

Meadowhawks and Skimmers Libellulidae
