Abstract

Many studies have been conducted throughout the world to determine the identity of Odonata found in a certain locality. In the United States individual workers have, in their own states, conducted surveys to determine what species were present. South Dakota was one of the few states in which such a survey had never been carried out. Thus South Dakota represented a missing link" in the formal complex of the United States Odonatan fauna. The present study was undertaken to determine what species, in the adult stage, were present and the abundance of each in east-central South Dakota.
