Abstract

Neocordulia is a Neotropical genus with 16 species distributed in the South and Central Americas. To date, only seven larvae of this genus have been described. Here we describe the final instar larva of Neocordulia volxemi (Selys, 1874), collected in the Environmental Protection Area of the Uberaba River Basin in the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The metallic–green adults were found flying in a forested area in a Conservation Unit, while the larvae were found in a waterfall and surrounding rocky walls. The Cerrado remnant area is currently threatened by degraded pastures and increasing areas of monoculture agriculture.
