ce gasiti aici / about the content
What this website is about?
This website contains information on damselflies and dragonflies in Romania. Not only species already found in Romania but also species expected to occur are mentioned.
The website is in Romanian language (with possibility to do, thanks to google, an aproximative english translation).
What can you find here (the description of the menu)?
I will try to summarize each section.
Information per family
Here you can find each family presented (ex. Calopterygidae), and the list of species belonging to the family. Each species has a short presentation: basic description, habits, flight-period, photos of both sexes, exuvia and characters for identifying larvae or exuvia (prementum, antenna …). Also distribution maps are given which are presented with Google Maps. Clicking on a dot on the maps will open a popup window which gives details on the record. The records on the map are from personal data, third party data (ex. photographed by XY), from personal collection or museum collection (ex. in Col. XY) and/or published records (ex. published by XY (year) ZW…).
Also in the page of each species a direct link for sending mail is present for external contribution (to send new data to me of that species… in general I will take only data that can be verified by an collected specimen or a photo).
This page contains references to all literature on Romanian Odonata, also mentioned if the title is available as PDF. When I will receive editor accept title will be also available for download.
Just short mentions… for example: today I have been there and seen that (possibly photos added), or today worked on that collection, or the records from XY literature title is now added there, or trying to find what species you can see in that photo.
Odonata (libelule)… în general
A page for Odonata with general information is work in progress (morphology/biology/etology…).
Lista speciilor/species list
And finally you have a link to a list with all species.
