About this book

Language: Spanish

This book groups 79 species of dragonflies found on the Iberian peninsula. This includes the F0 larva of Onychogomphus cazuma Barona, Cardo & Diaz, 2020 and excludes Lindenia tetraphylla (Van der Linden. 1825), although its description has been maintained in this book. In addition, to give a general review of the morphology, physiology, ecology and chorology of the larvae, a series of keys is given that aims to help in the determination of the species that are distributed in the Iberian Peninsula.

Undoubtedly one of the merits of this manual is to finally offer keys to all the Iberian dragonflies and damselflies in a single work, but it is not a simple compilation at all. The author approaches identification problems in an original way, proposing new solutions for the determination of zygoptera through surprising details such as the articulated tracheae of the lamellae of the lesstids, the fractal trees of the lamellae of some coenagrionids or the determination of the species of the family Libellulidae grouped in phylogenetic clades.

The keys that accompany the descriptions of species are based on purely morphological criteria, although they are supported by established genetic analyses.

Summary in Spanish:
Este libro agrupa 79 especies de libélulas de distribución ibérica. Se incluye la larva F0 de Onychogomphus cazuma Barona, Cardo & Diaz, 2020 y se excluye el listado a Lindenia tetraphylla (Van der Linden. 1825), aunque se ha mantenido su descripción en este libro. Además, de hacer repaso general de la morfología, fisiología, ecología y corología de las larvas, se da una serie de claves que pretenden ayudar en la determinación de las especies que se distribuyen en la península ibérica.

Sin duda uno de méritos de este manual es ofrecer ¡por fin! claves para toda la odonatofauna ibérica reunidas en una sola obra, pero no se trata en absoluto de una simple recopilación. El autor aborda los problemas de identificación de manera original, proponiendo nuevas soluciones para la determinación de los zigópteros a través de detalles sorprendentes como las tráqueas articuladas de las lamelas de los léstidos, los árboles fractales de las lamelas de algunos coenagriónidos o la determinación de las especies de la familia Libellulidae agrupados en clados filogenéticos.

Las claves que acompañan a las descripciones de especies, se basan en criterios puramente morfológicos, aunque se apoyan en análisis genéticos establecidos.
