Scientific Name: Onychogomphus kitchingmani
Species Authority: Pinhey, 1964

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2010
Date Assessed: 2008-06-03
Assessor(s): Clausnitzer, V. & Suhling, F.
Reviewer(s): Kipping, J., Simaika, J.P., Samways, M.J., Suhling, F. (Odonata Red List Authority) & Pollock, C.M. (IUCN Red List Unit)
Justification:
Onychogomphus kitchingmani may be restricted to the upper Zambezi catchment and therefore be limited in distribution. If limited it may be threatened by habitat destruction. However, the neighbouring regions of Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola are poorly explored. Therefore the species may prove to be more widespread than currently known. More data are needed to be able to assess the true status of the species. It is listed as Data Deficient.
History:
2007 Data Deficient
2006 Data Deficient (IUCN 2006)
2006 Data Deficient

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: The species is occurs in north west Zambia and neighbouring regions of Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola are likely.

No current records from within the central Africa assessment region are available. Neighbouring regions of Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola are poorly explored. Therefore the species may prove to be more widespread than currently known. More data are needed to be able to assess the true status of the species.

In southern Africa, the species is known only from five records in two localities from Mwinilunga district, north-west Zambia, at fast streams of the upper Zambezi catchment (Pinhey 1984a).
