Main Article Content
The newly described damselfly, Euphaea pseudodispar Sadasivan & Bhakare, 2021 (Insecta: Odonata) is reported from Wayanad in Kerala state for the first time. This observation suggests that it is distributed from the northern Western Ghats to the southern part of central Western Ghats up to Wayanad, north of the Palghat gap. This study highlights the need for extensive field surveys of Odonata in the Western Ghats of India.
