|Scientific Name:||Aciagrion hamoni|
|Species Authority:||Fraser, 1955|
|Taxonomic Notes:||The species has been described from a female holotype from western Cote d'Ivoire and its association with a male from north-east Congo-Kinshasa is dubious. Western African records of this and the similar A. gracile must be reviewed as they may pertain to the same species.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor/s:||Clausnitzer, V., Suhling, F. & Dijkstra, K.-D.B.|
|Reviewer/s:||Dijkstra, K.-D.B., Clausnitzer, V., Suhling, F., Samways, M., Samraoui, B., Boudot, J.P., Kipping, J. (Odonata Red List Authority) & Allen, D. (IUCN Freshwater Biodiversity Unit)|
It is assessed as Least Concern in all regions in view of its wide distribution, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a threatened category.
|Range Description:||The species has been recorded from Recorded from western Africa (Benin and Cote d'Ivoire) and Uganda. Record from Ghana likely. Records for Congo and Democratic Republic of Congo need confirmation.
In central Africa, it is described from a female holotype from western Cote d'Ivoire and its association with a male from north-east Congo-Kinshasa is dubious.
In eastern Africa, it has been recorded in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi and Burundi: Mabira Forest and Lake Nabugabo (both Uganda).
In western Africa, the species is known from Cote d'Ivoire, Benin and Ghana. However, western African records of this and the similar A. gracile must be reviewed as they may pertain to the same species.
