Argiocnemis solitaria is only known from the female type specimen. The taxonomic status of the species is doubtful. During two surveys on Rodrigues in August 2005 and April 2006 no other zygopteran than Ischnura senegalensis was recorded on the island (Martens unpublished data). More information is required to be able to assess this species beyond Data Deficient.

Errata [top]

Errata reason: When the 2008 assessment of this species was published in 2009, the incorrect 2006 citation reference was left attached to the account by mistake and hence the previous version of the assessment showed it as being published in 2006 although the assessment was only done in 2008. That error is corrected here and the original 2009 reference that should have been used in the citation is attached to the References.
