The Platystictidae of the Moluccas and Misool (Indonesia) are revised. All species are assigned to Drepanosticta Laidlaw. Representatives of this genus are known from the larger islands in the region, viz. Halmahera, Bacan, Obi, Ambon, Buru, Seram, and from the Kai island group. Aru is poorly studied for odonates, and no platystictids are known. Nine new species are described, viz. Drepanosticta halmahera sp. n., D. rudicula sp. n., D. sembilanensis sp. n. and D. siu sp. n., all from Halmahera… Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the Platystictidae (Odonata)
TLDR
A reconstruction of the phylogeny shows that several ancient lineages occur along the margin of the Indian Plate, and it is hypothesized that the Platystictidae family evolved on that continent. Expand
Notes on some species of the genus Protosticta from Vietnam (Odonata, Platystictidae)
Based on a study of various recent collections of Protosticta Selys from Vietnam, the dragonfly species P. grandis Asahina and P. khaosoidaoensis Asahina (sensu stricto) are reported from Vietnam forExpand
DREPANOSTICTA SIMUNI SPEC. NOV. FROM BORNEO WITH NOTES ON RELATED SPECIES (ZYGOPTERA: PLATYSTICTIDAE)
TLDR
The Platystictidae, once considered to be a small family in the Zygoptera, are now known to be very diverse on the islands of south-east Asia, but many species remain very poorly known. Expand
Out of Australia: the Argiolestidae reveal the Melanesian Arc System and East Papua Composite Terrane as possible ancient dispersal routes to the Indo-Australian Archipelago (Odonata: Argiolestidae)
TLDR
The results show that clades occurring in the Philippines, Wallacea and New Guinea all originate from Australian ancestors, and Representatives in Sundaland are most closely related to African genera and failed to reach the Philippines and Wallacea. Expand
Drepanosticta machadoi spec. nov. from New Guinea (Odonata: Platystictidae).
TLDR
The new species is a predominantly black damselfly, the male with four pale/bright pattern elements on each side of the synthorax, dorsum of segments 9 and 10 largely bright blue, and a uniquely shaped posterior lobe of the pronotum which is a wide-angled fork with rather straight, narrow finger-like prongs.
