This notebook contains data on a collection of dragonflies made in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, but principally in the eastern United States. Some collecting was done in the south, southwest, and west. A complete record of habitat from which most specimens were taken and occasional notes of the chase for especially prized specimens are included in the notebook.
