“It’s a significant result contributing to the biodiversity data of Viietnam and list of insect species. Most damselfly species in Vietnam are often found living in forests in the central highlands region,” Toản said. “The report on the latest damselfly is the first step in prolonged research on tiny dragonflies and other insect species in Vietnam,” he said. He said the damselfly species serves as a bio-indicator in assessing up-stream water and ecological systems in environment and agricultural production. According to latest research, about 400 dragonfly species had been identified in Vietnam.
