A new distribution record of an Odonata species from lower West Bengal. Mortonagrion aborense laidlaw, 1914 is recorded for the first time from Purba Medinipur district, lower West Bengal.

Diagnostic characters with photographic details of male anal appendages are also given for easy identification of this rare damselfly species.
