This guide is an aid to the identification of the Irish dragonflies and damselflies (Odonata). It consists of ten double-sided cards in a plastic wallet for easy use in the field.
All the resident and migrant species which have been recorded in Ireland since 1970 are included. It should be used in consultation with an authoritative field guide. We recommend the Field Guide to the Dragonflies of Great Britain and Ireland by Brooks and Lewington (British Wildlife Publishing).
