Abstract

The dragonfly fauna of the typical water bodies of the Reservoir Tisza-tó was characterised based on a two-year study. We collected 728 imagoes, 384 larvae and 194 exuviae during the study, and there were 101 observations of imagos. We confirmed the presence of 39 species (13 Zygoptera and 26 Anisoptera). We distinguished 5 types of water bodies inside and around the Reservoir Tisza-tó: leaking canals, a new inundated area of the reservoir, native water bodies inside the reservoir, in- and outflows, and River Tisza inside the reservoir. Both traditional diversity statistics and scalable diversity characterisation suggested that the most species-rich were the native water bodies, with a species-pool of 34 species; there were 30 species in the in- and outflows, while the leaking canals and the reservoir were moderately species-rich with 25 species each. The River Tisza was relatively species-poor compared to the other water bodies (12 species). Cluster analysis of the species composition revealed that the fauna of the River Tisza is clearly separated from the other water bodies. The fauna of the new inundated area, the native water bodies, and the in- and outflows were similar; these water bodies had direct connection to the reservoir. The fauna of the leaking canals was slightly different from them.
