Assam: A new dragonfly seed named after two women has been discovered
The two women were identified as Monisha Behal, a founding member of the Northeast Network (NEN), and named after Rita Banerji, the founder of Green Hub, and the newly discovered species Platygomphus benritarum.
This species was first witnessed in June 2020 by two researchers named Shantanujosi and Anujamital near the banks of the Brahmaputra River in the Tezpur district of Assam.
Seeds were found resting on a giant tree 5-6 meters away from the banks of Brahmaputra.
In particular, only one of them was found, a man who happened to have turquoise eyes and a dark brown face with hair on the sides.
