Green-faced Clubtail
Gomphus viridifrons Hines, 1901

Threats [-]
Any activity which might lead to water contamination or the alteration of natural hydrology could affect Green-faced Clubtail populations. Such threats might include agricultural run-off, increases in sedimentation, and changes in dissolved oxygen content of streams and rivers (Holst 2005).

Conservation Strategies and Management Practices [-]
Any measures to reduce water contamination or hydrological alteration such as chemical contamination from agricultural run-off and increases in sediment load in streams and rivers should be considered when managing for this species (Holst 2005).

Research Needs [-]
Further research is required to understand the habitat requirements of and threats to this species, and to create appropriate management guidelines for its persistence in known locations (Holst 2005).
