CalOdes: California Odonata Discussion Group
A Yahoo™ discussion group dedicated to Dragonflies and Damselflies of California.

From the site:
This forum is for the reporting of sightings and discussion of the Dragonflies and Damselflies in California that will further the knowledge base of the Status, Distribution and understanding of California's Dragonflies and Damselflies.

Dragonflies and Damselflies of the Northwest and Beyond
A collection of dragonfly and damselfly photographs and other materials by Jim Johnson focusing on the Pacific Northwest, but including other regions including the Neotropics.

The Dragonflies and Damselflies of North Carolina
This site aims to compile information and images that further our knowledge of the state's dragonflies and damselflies. As with so many groups of plants and animals, NC is at the northern end of odonate ranges with a southern distribution and the southern end of those with a northern distribution.

Dragonflies and Damselflies (Odonata) of Georgia
Here you will find images, individual and comparative county-based maps, flight season bars, and summary information on the current status of Georgia dragonflies and damselflies (Odonata).

Distribution, phenology, images.

Georgia odonates
Has maps, phenology, images.

Be prepared to be amazed at this wonderful site. Within minutes I had downloaded a list of all Dragonflies and Damselflies recorded from my county. State lists are here too.

For any species, you can view a map of your state, with counties shown and a dot in the counties where the species occurs. You can even view a map of the whole USA and Canada with a dot shown for each record.

Last year as this project was in its final phases, I contributed all my county records. Now everyone can contribute their records on-line. Photographic records will be vetted by experts and if the experts agree the ID is right they will accept the record. The site is affiliated with DSA, the chief dragonfly society in North America.

The Blue Darners: dragonflies of the genus Aeshna in British Columbia-
PDF file, very good on life history. I added this to a guide page, but it seems worthy of a link entry.

Dave Czaplak--Maryland Dragonfly and Damselfly Identification Pages
Dave Czaplak of Maryland, USA, has some very good pages on Moths and Butterflies, ( but the most impressive parts of his site are on odonata--so I wanted to be sure to put a link in that category. (I've put as the main link above his page on damselflies.) He has done some beautiful drawings of damselfly abdomens--very useful in identification.

The pages on odonates are:
ID Page for Mosaic Darners in MD
ID Page for River Cruisers in MD
