ABSTRACT. The article provides data on new findings of 10 species of dragonflies on the territory of the Republic of Adygea. Anax ephippiger (Burmeister, 1839), Pantala flavescens (Fabricius, 1798) and Selysiothemis nigra (Vander Linden, 1825) were recorded as new to the fauna of this region. For Coenagrion ornatum (Selys, 1850), Ischnura pumilio (Charpentier, 1825), Pyrrhosoma nymphula (Sulzer, 1776), Anaciaeschna isoceles (Mьller, 1767), Gomphus schneiderii Selys, 1850, Libellula fulva Mьller, 1764, and Orthetrum cancellatum (Linnaeus, 1758) that were previously known from single findings, we identified new collection points. The findings of exuviae of larvae of Selysiothemis nigra (Vande Linden, 1825) in the coastal parts of the water bodies of the city of Maykop indicate the reproduction of this species in the region.

KEY WORDS: dragonflies, new records, Republic of Adygea, Odonata, Anax ephippiger, Pantala flavescens, Selysiothemis nigra.
