Abstract:
Community structure of Odonata larvae was investigated in a fish farming pond at Tamluk located in the coastal belt of West Bengal, India. In total 12 species under 3 families and 2 suborder were recorded during study period. Suborders Anisoptera was the most dominant (76.16%) group. Family Gomphidae had the lowest abundance (1.93%) and Family libellulidae had highest abundance (76.66%). All the species were not found throughout the year. Some species such as <em>Pantala flavescens </em>(Fabricius, 1798) of family Libellulidae was found only in rainy months thus behaving as species associated with rains. Species diversity, dominance index, equitability index and evenness indices during study period, suggest a moderately stressed and disturbed environment.
