TLDR
Morphological diversity within the genus and the absence of obvious close relatives suggest an ancient and isolated presence in the Cape Floristic Region, emphasizing the uniqueness and conservation importance of the region’s endemic odonate fauna.
Critical species of Odonata in the Comoros, Seychelles, Mascarenes and other small western Indian Ocean islands
