Phylogeny of the Dragonfly and Damselfly Order Odonata as Inferred by Mitochondrial 12S Ribosomal RNA Sequences
CORRIE SAUX, CHRIS SIMON, AND GREG S. SPICER
ABSTRACT The phylogenetic relationships among members of the Odonates were inferred from
mitochondrial DNA 12S ribosomal RNA sequence data. These data show support for a monophyletic
Anisoptera suborder, which are consistent with previous phylogenetic work performed on the group.
However, the Zygoptera are paraphyletic based on mitochondrial DNA evidence. In particular, the
family Lestidae appears more closely related to the Anisoptera then the Zygoptera
