61 new species of dragon- and damselflies up in cyberspace


The publication contains, according to the title, 60 new dragaon- and damselfly species by KK et al (DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.35388) presents an ideal testbed for Plazi to test conversion of the 230 pages document and import its data into TreatmentBank.

Starting from this open access document on the Odonatologica web site the article has been mined for taxonomic treatments, bibliographic records, scientific names, observation records, collection- and specimen codes. Furthermore, the new taxonomic names have been registered at Zoobank and for the article, a DOI has been minted at the Bioidversity Literature Repository.
