Neuraeschna Hagen, 1867 

A genus of 15 large, dark species ( Figs. 64a & 64bView FIGURE 64), seven of which are recorded in Ecuador. For species identification, see Belle (1989). Habitat is small streams in swampy woodlands; adults are crepuscular and seldom seen, therefore being rarely collected.
