El aumento de las perturbaciones tiene efectos negativos sobre el control de insectos plagas en los humanos o el ganado (Culicidae, Chironomidae, Simuliidae, por ejemplo), ya que en habitats muy intervenidos la dominancia de estos grupos tiende a incrementar debido a la tolerancia que presentan frente a la depauperacion del habitat, disminuyendo asi la riqueza de insectos acuaticos que actuan como biorreguladores de estos insectos plagas, como en el caso de varias especies de las familias Libellulidae, Gomphidae y Coenagrionidae, por ejemplo (Garcia et al.
The dragonfly Neurothemis terminata terminata (Ris, 1911) belongs to Family Libellulidae classified based on the wing venation of its forewings and hind wings.
Organization of taxa is phylogenetic, and Paulson recognizes Macromiidae, Corduliidae and Libellulidae as separate families.
