Neuraeschna harpya Martin, 1909 

Material. 1♂, 3♀, Base CampGoogleMaps  .

Remarks. On 14 February I observed numerous specimens circling through the clearing of the Base Camp. At later dates the species became rather sporadic. Flight activity begun at about 6 30 h p.m. and the green thoracic stripes of Neuraeschna  could then still be made out from some distance. Later, increasing darkness would prevent one from distinguish this genus from simultaneously flying Gynacantha's. During day time I never saw any Neuraeschna  in the jungle. This is the first record of the species from Venezuela.
