Abstract

This is the taxonomy study of dragonfly in UiTM Pahang, Kampus Jengka. This
study focused on the findings of dragonfly species under the order Odonata which
is well known as being one of the most fascinating insect groups. The problem
statements of this study were how many species of dragonfly that can be found in
UiTM Pahang, Kampus Jengka. In UiTM Pahang, Kampus Jengka, the species of
the dragonfly is not well explored. Secondly, what are the morphology and
taxonomic characteristics including venation of wings and external genitalia of
dragonfly and where to map the existence of dragonfly in UiTM Pahang, Kampus
Jengka. This study was done to determine the species of dragonfly, to compare the
morphology and taxonomic characteristics emphasis on venation of wings and
external genitalia of dragonfly and to map the existence of dragonfly in different
study site in UiTM Pahang, Kampus Jengka. For methodology process, the
dragonfly species were identified by random sampling and specimen collection.
Sampling method by sweeping net was used. Dragonflies can be differentiated
morphologically at the species level. Morphological variations and taxonomic
characteristics that focus on venation of wings and external genitalia among
dragonflies were compared. The existence of dragonflies in 3 different places
were mapped by using A-GPS and Google earth application. The sampling area
consists of forest reserve, plantation and residential area. A rich collection of 102
individuals belonging to 14 genera and 17 species of dragonflies from 3 families
of Odonata (Anisoptera) were successfully collected in UiTM Pahang, Kampus
Jengka in contrast to 15 species previously recorded. The number of species now
stands at 27 species from 3 families. This research has contributed to the
discovery of 12 species new to UiTM Pahang, Kampus Jengka. Libellulidae was
found to be the most dominant family followed by Aeshnidae and Gomphidae.
The most common genera were Neurothemis, Trithemis and 1ctinogomphus. The
rare genera were Heliaeschna, Gynacantha and Tholymis. The residential has
shown the highest number of genera and species which were 9 genera and 10
species, followed by 9 genera and 9 species from plantation 6 genera and 7
species from forest reserve.
