The presence of dragonflies and damselflies (Odonata) is taken as an indication of good ecosystem quality. Information on the diversity of Odonata across countries such as East Africa, South Africa, Zambia, America, United Kingdom, and India has been well documented. There is little documentation on Odonates in Nigeria and none in GBIF IPT. This study is part of research on diversity of Nigerian Odonates. It was funded by GBIF (BID-AF2017-0311) and University of Lagos, Nigeria (CRC 2016/21). It involved the Digitization and Mobilization of Odonata of Southern Nigeria, and molecular characterization, DNA barcoding and banking of Odonata of South western Nigeria. So far over 6000 collections have been made comprising of over 190 species. Collections from University of Lagos, Lagos State Nigeria comprised preserved specimens from Okomu forest in Edo State, Eruwa and Lalete towns in Oyo State, Lufasi Park, Omu resorts, University of Lagos, Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) Ajah and Victoria Garden City (VGC). It comprised a total of 3061 collections made up of 80 species from 5 families, Libellulidae (79%), Coenagrionidae (19%), Gomphidae (< 1%), Calopterygidae (2%), and Aesnidae (< 1%) Chlorocyphidae (< 1%)

Dragonflies and damselflies (Odonata) are used as biomonitors of health and quality of water. This result is from funding by GBIF (BID-AF2017-0311) and University of Lagos, Nigeria(CRC 2014/21) that involves the Digitization and Mobilization of Odonata in Southern Nigeria and molecular characterization, DNA barcoding and banking of Odonata of South western Nigeria. So far, 3105 individuals from University of Lagos, Lagos, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State and Okomu forest in Edo State, Nigeria have been digitized. There are 108 species, with Chalcostephia flavefrons, Ceriagrion glabrum, Palpopleura lucia, Acisoma panorpoides and Pantala flavescens having 16, 11, 10, 8 and 7% respectively of the population. Six Families represented include Libellulidae(79%), Coenagrionidae (17%), Calopterygidae (2.4%) Aeshnidae (0.4%), Chlorocyphidae(0.6%), Platycnemididae (0.1%. Species having only one individual include Chlorocypha rubida,Chlorocypha frigida, Anax speratus, Ceriagrion citrinum and Umma longistigma.
