Abstract

Odonata diversity in fish farm of Department of Fisheries, CSKHPKV, Palampur, Kangra Valley, Himachal Pradesh were comprehensively studied and documented for the first time. A total of 27 species belonging to 19 genera and 7 families of two suborders are recorded. The suborder Zygoptera was represented by 13 species and 14 species represents Anisoptera. Among the families, Libellulidae was richest family with 13 species and followed by Coenagrionidae with 9 species. The wide range of habitats including foraging and nocturnal roosting habitat at Fish Farm, CSKHPKV leads to greatest species diversity.
