Dragonfly

Dragonflies belong to the insect order known as Odonata. The Italian name is ‘libellula’ and derives from the Latin word ‘libra’, i.e. scales, because dragonflies hold their wings out horizontally. The most abundant phylum is Arthropoda that has over a million known species, 750,000 of which belong to the class Insecta.
