Seventy-five species of dragonflies have been reported in Arkansas. The present study provides 43 species; records of the other 32 are drawn from the literature and personal communication with individuals. A new species, Gomphus ozarkensis, described from western Arkansas in 1975 on the basis of minimal data emphasizes the need for extensive work in this area. Opportunities to collect and identify additional species are discussed.
