    The order Odonata is widely distributed on the American continent.  These organisms are found in association with bodies of water where they reproduce.  Information on the specific wealth in odonates of our country is insufficient; there are states in which very little is known about them.  The state of Michoacán is one of these.  The purpose of this study was to make a listing of the adult odo-nates present in Northeast Michoacán.  A series of collections were done in streams of three areas of that part of the state:  Area 1, Enandio; Area II, Los Azufres Park; Area III, Cerro Garnica Park.  The organisms were collected from December 1988 to April 1991 and deposited in the entomology collection of the Zoology Laboratory of one of the campuses of the National University (UNAM), ENEP-1.  Thirty-one species belonging to six families and 17 genera were identified.  The most representative species was hetaerina vulnerata;  the most abundant family was Calopterygidae, and the most diverse was Coenagrionidae.  The largest specific wealth was found in the warmest area (Anadio).  Also, 18 new records were found in the locations mentioned.
