Abstract

Pantala flavescens, probably the most widespread dragonfly on Earth, has been recorded for the first time in Poland. Two single specimens (males) were observed in middle-eastern and northern part of the country in Summer 2016. Both observation sites are the valuable completion of knowledge about the distribution of this migratory species, which had been previously found only once in Central-Eastern Europe. New data indicates possible migration routes of this species in this region.
