Prior to 2012, only 158 species of Odonata were known from Angola. Surveys in 2012 and 2013 added 76 species and two further additions in 2016 brought the national total to 236 species. We provide a revised checklist with taxonomic notes and discuss the history of research, the biogeography of the fauna, and the potential for further discoveries. The national total is likely to be above 300 species. This would make Angola one of the richest countries for Odonata in Africa. The endemic species…

Six, not two, species of Acisoma pintail dragonfly (Odonata: Libellulidae).
TLDR
The dragonfly genus Acisoma is revised based on adult male morphology and COI sequence data, including the new species A. attenboroughi sp.
The Systematist's Muse – two new damselfly species from 'Elisabetha' in the Congo Basin (Odonata: Chlorocyphidae, Platycnemididae)
TLDR
The taxonomy and distribution of Platycypha and Mesocnemis are discussed and keys are provided for the males.
The Atoconeura problem revisited: taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography of a dragonfly genus in the highlands of Africa (Odonata, Libellulidae)
TLDR
The taxonomic disorder in the genus A. biordinata is sketched, with a revised classification of the taxa and a reassessment of their biogeography, which demands a more objective analysis of variation.
Revision of the three-striped species of Phyllogomphus (Odonata, Gomphidae)
TLDR
It is believed that only four threestriped species exist in Phyllogomphus, which are somewhat variable and widely overlapping in range, size and colour, but morphologically very distinctive.
Focus on African freshwaters: hotspots of dragonfly diversity and conservation concern
3 This is the first continent-wide overview of insect diversity and status sufficiently fine-scaled to be used in con- servation planning. We analyze patterns of richness and the conservation status
Trithemis morrisoni sp. nov. and T. palustris sp. nov. from the Okavango and Upper Zambezi Floodplains previously hidden under T. stictica (Odonata: Libellulidae)
TLDR
Two undescribed libellulid species were discovered in the Okavango and Upper Zambezi Floodplains and described as T. stictica and T. morrisoni sp.
The name-bearing types of Odonata held in the Natural History Museum of Zimbabwe, with systematic notes on Afrotropical taxa. Part 1: introduction and Anisoptera
TLDR
Orthographic details of 118 name-bearing types of Odonata are provided, and it was confirmed that Gynacantha ochraceipes is a junior synonym of G. natalensis.
The name-bearing types of Odonata held in the Natural History Museum of Zimbabwe, with systematic notes on Afrotropical taxa. Part 2: Zygoptera and descriptions of new species
TLDR
The taxonomy of the gracilis-group of Chlorocypha and the Afrotropical members of Prodasineura and Aciagrion are discussed and Chlorocnemis montana maccleeryi is nearer C. abbotti than nominotypic C. montana, and is raised to species level.
Inflation by venation and the bankruptcy of traditional genera: the case of Neodythemis and Micromacromia, with keys to the continental African species and the description of two new Neodythemis species from the Albertine Rift (Odonata: Libellulidae)
TLDR
The Afrotropical ‘neodythemistines’ are identified by male and female genitalia, supported by colour patterns, and these correspond to the only two genera which the authors retain: Micromacromia and Neodythemis.
