Sri Lanka is a tropical island in the Indian Ocean, with a land area of 65,610 km2. In spite of its small size, the island has a variety of ecosystems with significant species diversity. There are 124 dragonfly and damselfly species identified from the island; 49.2% of them are endemic to Sri Lanka comprising 52 species and 9 subspecies. Although a listing of 124 species is substantial, not all species are common; some may be widespread and uncommon.
