Photographic library of wings of Australian Odonata

This resource is an index to photographs of male and female wings of 207 species of dragonfly and 111 species of damselfly found in Australia. Each image shows a pair of right wings, a scale, an identifying taxonomic name and gender.

These high-resolution images were made by John Tann at the Australian Museum using identified collection material from that museum and other Australian collections. Equipment and method used to create the images are detailed in Tann (2020).

The index has links to the wing image of each specimen and to an image of the original museum specimen.

Data Records

The data in this 出現紀錄 resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 636 records. 1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

  • Occurrence (核心)
    636
  • Multimedia 
    636

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

計畫資料

This project has created an openly accessible, high-resolution, photographic library of wings of Australian dragonflies and damselflies, order Odonata.

計畫名稱 Wing Images of Australian Odonata
研究區域描述 Both male and female wings of 318 species of Odonata found in Australia have been photographed.
研究設計描述 Wings have been photographed with a specialist set-up using identified museum collection material. In general, both wings were removed from the insect body to produce an image with a minimum of visual artefacts. Each resulting image shows a pair of right wings, a scale, an identifying taxonomic name and gender. Equipment and method used to create the images are detailed in Tann, John. 2020.

取樣方法

In order to create good quality images, wings were removed from most specimens so they could be photographed without artefacts. Dragonflies and damselflies in paper envelopes were preferred to pinned specimens as they were generally cleaner, easier to work with, and required no reconstruction after photographing. Technique A specimen in poor condition, with good wings was selected. Many dragonfly and damselfly specimens in collections have broken bodies, separated abdomens or heads. Working with already-damaged material reduced the impact of this destructive technique. All specimens were registered, with few exceptions, and identification of each specimen was critical. Only one specimen at a time was processed before being returned to its drawer to avoid a mix-up. A whole-of-body photograph of the original specimen with all labels was made before further work, for reference and quality control. Both right wings were surgically removed. Occasionally, due to availability, left wings were used and their images artificially flipped. Both wings were photographed independently using a good quality camera and customised rig. Wings and bodies were returned to their paper envelope. Where pinned specimens were used, the wings were attached to paper points and re-pinned. Occasionally wings were photographed while still attached to the insect body. This was a sub-optimal method, used for rare and special specimens.

研究範圍 Specimens of Odoanata held in the Australian and other collections in Australia
品質控管 To ensure final wing images maintained their correct identification, the taxonomic name, according to the Australian Faunal Directory, and gender, male or female, were added to the lower right corner of each image. A whole-of-body photograph of the reference specimen with its registration number is available in this resource.
