Abstract: A recent collection of 69 specimens together with survey counts and
incidental observations during June-July 2002 provide new information on
the odonate fauna of Kosrae, Micronesia. The fauna comprises one zygopteran
(Ischnura aurora) and six anisopterans. It appears to have remained stable with no
known extinctions or colonizations over the past half century. The fauna is
nearly a subset of that of Pohnpei and the islands to the west, and it comprises
six widespread weedy species and one endemic, Hemicordulia erico. Upland
aquatic habitats appear largely unexploited or underutilized by odonates, and the
absence of any Teinobasis species on Kosrae is in marked contrast to the presence
of six species on the nearest high island, Pohnpei.
