Micrathyria Kirby, 1889 

A large group of small to medium-sized dragonflies ( Fig. 102View FIGURE 102) in need of revision. Heckman (2006) devised a key to species based on the scattered literature. Twenty-one species have been recorded for Ecuador, plus there are a number of specimens with questionable identity that could increase this number. The group occupies a wide variety of habitats including vegetated lakes, ponds, and sloughs, both open and shaded.
