Species of Devadatta from Borneo are studied using both morphological and molecular methods. As well as D. podolestoides Laidlaw, four new species are recognised from the island: D. aran spec. nov. (holotype ♂, from Pulong Tau National Park, Miri division, Sarawak, Malaysia, deposited in RMNH), D. clavicauda spec. nov. (holotype ♂, from Bukit Mina, Bukit Mina Wildlife Corridor, Sarawak Planted Forest Project, Bintulu division, Sarawak, Malaysia, deposited in RMNH), D. somoh spec. nov. (holotype… Expand
The oldest ‘amphipterygid’ damselfly of tropical affinities in the Paleocene of Menat (Zygoptera: Eucaloptera)
TLDR
This new fossil allows us to confirm the tropical affinities of the odonatan fauna of the Menat paleolake communities and shows that the amphipterygids were clearly more widespread during the Paleogene than today, probably in relation to the worldwide warm and equable climate in the Paleocene.

Integrative species delimitation based on COI, ITS, and morphological evidence illustrates a unique evolutionary history of the genus Paracercion (Odonata: Coenagrionidae)
TLDR
The discordance in COI and ITS also indicates the value of using markers from different sources in species delimitation studies, and the possibility of introgression, hybridization, recent speciation and incomplete lineage sorting makes species delimiting difficult and complicates understanding of the evolutionary history of Paracercion.

Playing hide-and-seek with the tiny dragonfly: DNA barcoding discriminates multiple lineages of Nannophya pygmaea in Asia
TLDR
The utility of DNA barcode data for assessing genetic diversity of the tiny dragonfly Nannophya pygmaea Rambur in Asia is examined and four species delimitation analyses are applied to investigate potential lineages in this geographically widespread species. Expand
