ENV: John Abbott Details New Texas Odes

Via Mike Quinn:

Abbott, J.C. 2005. New and notable records of Odonata from Texas.
Southwestern Entomologist 30(3): 169-174.

Abstract (part):
A dramatic increase in interest in the North American Odonata (dragonfly and damselfly) fauna in the last few years has lead to many new discoveries, particularly in southern areas where subtropical species seem to be expanding their range northward. I report on the occurrence of eight Odonata species previously unknown from Texas... These discoveries include four species previously unknown from the United States and the first occurrence of the genus Leptobasis in the country.
