Welcome to the Odonata of Bangladesh, database of the dragonflies and damselflies of Bangladesh. Situated in the South-east Asia, Bangladesh is gifted with the rich network of water resources like ponds, lakes, marshes, rivers, streams and mangrove swamps. This diverse range of water bodies along with many tropical forest patches has generated suitable habitat for many Odonata species. Till date, nearly hundred species of Odonates have been recorded from Bangladesh.
The current project, supported by Rufford Small Grant, is designed to assemble and disseminate information of diversity, ecology and behavior of the Bangladeshi dragonflies and damselflies. Odonata of Bangladesh website provides a platform to the naturalists and ordinary citizens to contribute to the knowledge of the Bangladeshi Odonata fauna. Interested naturalists can contribute by sharing sightings of species, providing information of their habitats and abundances using the web portal. If you cannot identify the species, you can send identification requests also.
