The genus Anax comprises a group with cosmopolitan distribution and 27 species around the world. In Brazil, Anax is represented by three species: A. amazili, A. concolor and A. longipes. Anax amazili occurs, in South America, from French Guiana to Argentina, and in Brazil is distributed in the northeast and southeast of the country. We have reported A. amazili for the first time in southern Brazil, from the state of Rio Grande do Sul, extending its current distribution about 1000 km.
