THE ODONATA COMMUNITY OF A BRAZILIAN VEREDA: SEASONAL PATTERNS, SPECIES DIVERSITY AND RARITY IN A PALM SWAMP ENVIRONMENT
A survey of Odonata species and studied their seasonality in an endemic endangered palm swamp environment of the Ecological Reserve of Clube de Caca e Pesca Itororo de Uberlândia, Southestern Brazil, which exhibits a great diversity of dragonflies and damselflies.
Erythrodiplax ana sp. nov. (Odonata: Libellulidae) from Brazilian palm swamps.
The new species fits in Borror's Basalis Group, and can be distinguished from other species by the combination of the following traits: blue pruinosity dorsally on thorax and third to eighth abdominal segments.

This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the behaviour of flies in the presence of an E. coli infestation.
A further study on Franciscobasis Machado & Bedê, 2016 (Odonata: Coenagrionidae), a newly described genus from Minas Gerais, Brazil
It is suggested that F. sonia is a junior synonym of F. franciscoi, and the female ofF.
Female color polymorphism of Ischnura capreolus Hagen, 1861 (Odonata: Coenagrionidae) with notes on behavior and ontogenetic color changes
This study provides the first evidence of ontogenetic color change in I. capreolus, a Neotropical species of which, until now, little information concerning color polymorphism and ontogenetics color changes was known.
New records of Forcipomyia (Pterobosca) incubans (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) parasitizing wings of Odonata in Brazil
The results suggest that the distribution of this species may range from southern South America to Mexico, with higher densities in the Brazilian and Colombian Tropical Rain Forests.
The Influence of Body Size and Agility in Displacement Capacity of Male Damselflies (Odonata, Protoneurinae)
The results suggest that the strategies adopted by E. williamsoni males may be a reflection of body condition, adding evidence on how selection may act on different phenotypes within a population and how body size variations may result in different displacement capacities and flight agility.
