The current status and distribution of the dragonflies (Anisoptera) of Pakistan were studied during 2005-2009. Two dragonfly species were identified for the first time from Pakistan. Among these, Rhodothemis rufa is a red, medium-sized dragonfly. Lamelligomphus biforceps is also reported for the first time from Pakistan and re-described owing to having minor taxonomic differences from that of Fraser’s description. Some notes on the color, literature records and geographical distributions are summarized.
