A total of 28 species of odonates, including 18 species of dragonflies (Suborder Anisoptera) belonging to 3 families and 10 species of damselflies (Suborder Zygoptera) belonging to two families were recorded from the Manjeera Wildlife Sanctuary between December 2010 to October 2012. The highest diversity of odonates was that of family Libellulidae (50%), followed by Coenagrionidae (32.14%), Aeshnidae (10.71%), Gomphidae (3.57%) and Platycnemididae (3.57%). Four taxa, namely - Anaciaeschna jaspidea (Burmeister, 1839), Coenagrion dyeri (Fraser, 1924), Pseudagrion decorum (Rambur, 1842) and Rhodischnura nursei (Morton, 1907) are reported for the first time from Andhra Pradesh. We are also reporting for the first time the female polymorphism of Neurothemis tullia (Drury, 1773) (Anisoptera; Libellulidae) from the Manjeera Wildlife Sanctuary, Medak District, Andhra Pradesh.
