Abstract : A morphometric study on European Podagrion provided evidence for the existence of several different species. Specimens were collected from the fields and also from isogenetic strains representative of putative species, including one undescribed. We also performed crossing tests between 3 species to assess a possible reproductive isolation between putative species. A partial ecological barrier was found as well as, at least for one species, an absolute barrier concerning the mating behaviour. (Résumé d'auteur)
