Megapodagrionidae

provided by wikipedia EN

The Megapodagrionidae are a family of damselflies,[2] commonly called flatwings for their habit of spreading out the hind wings horizontally when at rest.[3]

A 2013 phylogenetic analysis pares down this family into only three genera,[4] and numerous other genera are now placed in different families, including Amanipodagrionidae, Argiolestidae, Heteragrionidae, Hypolestidae, Lestoideidae, Mesagrionidae, Mesopodagrionidae, Philogeniidae, Philosinidae, Protolestidae, Rhipidolestidae, Tatocnemididae, and Thaumatoneuridae.
