Abstract The Mesoamerican damselfly genus Amphipteryx includes four species: Amphipteryx agrioides (Mexico), A. chiapensis (Mexico), A. meridionalis (Honduras) and A. nataliae (Verapaz, Guatemala). We describe a fifth species, Amphipteryx jaroli, from the cloud forest in Pico Bonito National park, Honduras. Additionally we include an up to date key of all species in the genus for both sexes.

A synopsis of the genus Amphipteryx Selys 1853 (Odonata: Amphipterygidae)
The Mesoamerican damselfly genus Amphipteryx includes one already described and three more undescribed species: Amphipteryx agrioides, Selys 1853, A. chiapensis (Mexico, Chiapas, 5 mi E Rayon), A.
Redefining the damselfly families: a comprehensive molecular phylogeny of Zygoptera (Odonata)
An extensive molecular phylogenetic reconstruction of the suborder Zygoptera of the Odonata is presented, based on mitochondrial (16S, COI) and nuclear (28S) data of 59% of the 310 genera recognized
Habitat Loss and Extinction in the Hotspots of Biodiversity
The results suggest that the Eastern Arc and Coastal Forests of Tanzania-Kenya, Philippines, and Polynesia-Micronesia can least afford to lose more habitat and that, if current deforestation rates continue, the Caribbean, Tropical Andes, Philippines and Me- soamerica, Sundaland, Indo-Burma, Madagascar, and Choco-Darien-Western Ecuador will lose the most habitat in the near future.
Protected Areas and Effective Biodiversity Conservation
This work provides guidance for strategically allocating management efforts among and within existing PAs to strengthen their collective contribution toward preventing global species extinctions.
