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.

It may be said that the International Journal of Odonatology of the World Dragonfly Association has published an article about its discovery.

According to the article, this species is named after Behal and Banerji for 20 years of impeccable work.
