Here in the South Texas' Lower Rio Grande Valley or LRGV, the total number of LRGV
odonates documented thus far is 113 species (33 LRGV damselfly
species and 80 LRGV dragonfly species) from Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr and Willacy Counties.
Las libélulas are some of the most interesting creatures flying around.
Lots of folks are becoming aware of what neat LRGV odonata we have down here in the
Lower Rio Grande Valley. The Valley Nature Center's Dragonfly Days has introduced these fun creatures to many, many
people. Join us in Weslaco for this slow-paced event, each May.
In the meantime, come on down to the Rio Grande Valley, enjoy the heat, bring your cameras
and nets and help us grow our Rio Grande Valley odonata list and please report your RGV dragonflies and RGV damselflies
to John C. Abbott's Odonata Central.
