  • This is a dragonfly of genus Burmagomphus, which is represented by three species – B. Cauvericus, B. Pyramidalis and B. Laidlawi. 
    • While B. laidlawi is found throughout the Western Ghats,
    • B. cauvericus is more restricted in its distribution.
    • B. pyramidalis is found in the Western Ghats as well as in Peninsular India.
  • The Western and Eastern Himalayas are home to all other species in the genus.
  • The patterns on the lateral thorax and the unusual shape of the anal appendages distinguish the new species from its congeners.
  • The Western Ghats are known to be home to this species.
