Abstract

Odonates are found in all freshwater environments, and are specially species rich in tropical freshwater ecosystems. Currently about 800 odonate species are known to Brazil, but only 29% of the Brazil territory have been surveyed for this group. Here we provide a species list with information on distribution and new records for Odonata in nine streams in Nova Xavantina, Mato Grosso, Central Brazil. We used the scan procedure with a fixed area for three days in each stream between 10:00 and 14:00h. We collected 1038 dragonfly specimens belonging to 67 species, which represents 8% of the known Brazil odonate fauna. Additionally, five new records for the study area are presented. © 2014 Check List and Authors.
