The oldest-known Lestidae (Odonata) from the late Eocene of Tibet: palaeoclimatic implications
Abstract Terrestrial fossils from the Palaeogene of Tibet could help us to better understand the past climate and environment in this area. We herein report a new late Eocene non-marine fossil site
Rediscovery of a long lost endemic damselfly Sinhalestes orientalis (Hagen in Selys, 1862) from Peak Wilderness Sanctuary, Sri Lanka (Zygoptera: Lestidae)
TLDR
The re-discovery of Sinhalestes orientalis from the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary, Sri Lanka after 154 years from its last and only record is reported.
A re-description of the fossil damselfly Eolestes syntheticus Cockerell, 1940 (Odonata: Zygoptera: Eolestidae n. fam.) with description of new taxa from the Eocene of North America.
The enigmatic species Eolestes syntheticus Cockerell, 1940, from the Early Eocene of North America, previously attributed to the lestoid family Synlestidae, is re-examined in light of the discovery
RECOGNITION OF THE FIRST FOSSIL LESTOID DAMSELFLY IN SOUTH AMERICA (INSECTA: ZYGOPTERA): BIOGEOGRAPHIC AND PHYLOGENETIC REMARKS
TLDR
The specimen studied here represents the first fossil Euzygoptera Bechly, 1996 described in South America, and new discoveries similar to the present one shall probably modify the present fragmentary fossil record of Lestinoidea.
Phylogenetic analysis of higher‐level relationships of Odonata
Abstract. This is the most comprehensive analysis of higher‐level relationships in Odonata conducted thus far. The analysis was based on a detailed study of the skeletal morphology and wing venation
New Tertiary Fossil Odonata from France (Sieblosiidae, Lestidae, Coenagrionidae, Megapodagrionidae, Libellulidae)
TLDR
Two new species of Stenolestes and three unnamed new Coenagrionidae increase the knowledge of the palaeodiversity of odonatan faunas in the Tertiary of western Europe.
