Abstract:
Dragonflies are among the most ancient of living creatures. Fossil records, clearly recognisable as dragonflies, go back to Carboniferous times which means that they date back almost 300 million years, predating pterodactyls by 100 million years and birds by some 150 million. It would he tragic if, after surviving such an unimaginable number of years, it should be our generation that witnesses the decline of these fascinating and beautiful insects. The British Dragonfly Society maintains a checklist of British and Irish dragonflies. This checklist includes all British and Irish species including migrants, vagrants and species now believed extinct in the British Isles. The species name provides a link to a photograph where available. Information was obtained from "http://www.british-dragonflies.org.uk/content/uk-species".
