Well, we can't update the maps quite yet, although the data will soon

now have newly generated county lists, with all data that has made it
into the database as of December, 2011. Go to the Species Maps section to see the new lists in 3 different
can participate in our ongoing survey through photo records!
You can read about how to collect Odonata yourself. Another click will take
you to research done by members of the Society. Society news includes happenings around the
state, updates on our annual meeting, a list of officers
(and their email addresses), and other information about
Odonata Society. In 2002, we published The
Dragonflies and Damselflies of Ohio, a guide to all of the
species in the state. If you want to see pictures of Odonata,
try our images page. We also have a page of links to other sites of interest concerning
Odonata. We have one page dedicated to endangered
species and other species of interest in Ohio. Finally, and perhaps most exciting, our Species Maps section showcases information from
our database of over 25,000 records of Odonata collected
in Ohio. You can view maps for each species showing where
in the state it has been collected, access lists of
species for each of Ohio's 88 counties, as well as
documents on how the maps are produced and information on
the software used to keep track of all of the records.

satisfaction of contributing to our knowledge of the
natural world of Ohio.
