          Abstract

          Odonates (Damselflies and Dragonflies) were recorded from three Tiger Reserves of Madhya Pradesh, Central India, including Kanha, Pench and Bandhavgarh, where 47 species were recorded within 7 families and 31 genera. We recorded 44 species from Kanha, 41 species from Pench and 37 species from Bandhabgarh Tiger Reserve. Thirty-five species were recorded in all three tiger reserves. Suborder Zygoptera was represented by the families Coenagrionidae, Lestidae, Calopterygidae and Protoneuridae and suborder Anisoptera by the families Gomphidae, Libellulidae and Aeshnidae. Libellulidae was the largest family with 17 genera. In summer survey Orthetrum sabina Drury, 1770 was the most abundant species, while in winter the most abundant was Agriocnemis pygmea Rambur, 1842.
