Scope note
Group of around 3,000 species of aerial predatory insects most commonly found near freshwater habitats throughout most of the world. Dragonfly species (Anisoptera) are characterized by long bodies with two narrow pairs of intricately veined, membranous wings that, while generally transparent, may have colored markings. Unlike damselflies (suborder Zygoptera), the front and rear wing pairs are shaped differently.
