Images of Australian Odonata wings
A recently finished project has created an openly accessible, high-resolution, photographic library of wings of Australian dragonflies and damselflies, order Odonata. The library is an open resource for identification and research. Both male and female wings of 318 species of dragonfly and damselfly 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 sex.
