We introduce new data about 14 species of dragonflies in the Nature Reserve "Laguna de Fuente de Piedra". We especially highlight the persistence of Lestes macrostigma (Evers.,1836) in that area, after fourteen years with no trace of them in Andalusia. Populations of this species are clearly regressive along its European distribution.

Plant preference during oviposition in the endangered dragonfly Lestes macrostigma (Odonata: Zygoptera) and consequences for its conservation
It is hypothesized that these preferences are relevant in the selection of oviposition substrates which are more likely to be flooded earlier by rainfall, reducing risk of egg desiccation and increasing hatching success and should be encouraged by wildlife managers especially in habitat restoration programs which aim to increase the number of suitable breeding sites for the species.
Citas bibliográficas de odonatos en Andalucía
Bibliographical data on Andalusian dragonflies are abstracted and ordered by province and 10x10 kilometers squares. Doubtful records as well as species to be confirmed in the region are discussed.

Critical species of Odonata in Europe
It is believed that future conservation efforts should focus on the most valuable and threatened habitats in each sub-region, and active conservation measures could be implemented on a European scale, provided that research will establish a solid ground for such measures.
Sobre la situación actual de Lestes macrostigma (Eversmann, 1836) (Insecta: Odonata) en el área de Doñana (Andalucía, sur de España)
En los ultimos anos se ha producido la extincion, aparente o real, de las poblaciones de varias especies de odonatos en el espacio natural protegido mas importante del sur de Espana, Donana; una de
Historical changes in the phenology of British Odonata are related to climate
The results suggest that the damped temperature oscillations experienced by aquatic organisms compared with terrestrial organisms are sufficient to evoke phenological responses similar to those of purely terrestrial taxa.
