Abstract

A total of 199 dragonfly specimens from Hensch collection were determined to species level and found to belong to 44 species. A total of 425 dragonfly specimens from Košćec collection were found to belong to 44 species. Hensch insect collection contains dragonfly specimens from eight countries, with represented fauna being mostly of Eurosiberian distribution. Košćec insect collection contains dragonfly specimens collected in Croatia, with the fauna also being mostly of Eurosiberian distribution. The most interesting faunistic findings from the Hensch collection are critically endangered spotted darter (Sympetrum depressiusculum) and southern darter (Sympetrum meridionale) collected in Austria. The most interesting faunistic findings in Košćec collection are those of critically endangered spotted darter (Sympetrum depressiusculum), banded darter (Sympetrum pedemontanum) and lilypad whiteface (Leucorrhinia caudalis) collected in northern Croatia.
