Abstract

A gynandromorphic individual of Trithemis aurora is reported from a garden in Palakkad district, Kerala state, India. Its eyes, thorax, legs, wings, and abdomen show mosaic gynandromorphy. The abdomen is mostly gynochromic with the tip bearing female appendages. Detailed study of the specimen shows that female characters predominate but significant areas exhibit male characters.
