(invertebrate zoology)
A family of zygopteran insects in the order Odonata.

Coenagrionidae

 

a family of damselflies of the suborder Zygoptera. The insects are small and usually light blue in coloration. The wings are petiolate, and the abdomen is thin. The seven genera, which comprise about 1,000 species, occur primarily in the tropics. There are 39 species in the USSR. The insects live near freshwater bodies. The female lays eggs only when the male is present; the eggs are deposited in the tissues of aquatic plants. The larvae develop amid thickets situated near the shore. The flies are predators, feeding on small insects, such as bloodsucking dipterons.

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.
