Range Description

Orthetrum trinacria is widespread throughout the whole of Africa, except in the tropical rainforest, and the Middle East, and reaches the south of Europe. The easternmost localities are in western Iran, the northernmost ones in northern Sardinia. Former records from Anatolia are doubtful but recent authenticated records from northern Syria, southern Turkey, Greece, Malta and south west Iberia point toward a recent expansion and increase in density of the species to the north, probably due both to climate warming and construction of new man-made pools which are promptly colonized.
