This study was conducted in the years 1998, 1999 and 2003, and it is the first one on the Odonata fauna found in Gökçeada Island (northern Aegean Sea, Turkey). During the study period, 29 taxa were collected, or observed, and identified. One of the species observed on Gökçeada Island, Lindenia tetraphylla, is also found on the mainland of Turkey (Anatolian Peninsula, but only in five areas, Köyceğiz, Marmaris, Adıaman, Şanlıurfa and N of Hatay). As far as Aegean islands are concerned L. tetraphylla is found only in Island Thassos. Onychogomphus forcipatus albotibialis and Pantala flavescens, whose distribution range in the Aegean Islands is unclear, are other zoogeographically noteworthy records. Biogeographical data is congruent with island biogeography theory (MacArthur and Wilson, 2001).
