Records of Odonata collected at sites in central of Terengganu, Peninsular Malaysia, in August 2011 are presented. A total of 90 species from 13 families were collected. Of these, 49 named species are the first confirmed records for Terengganu and another three species to which no definite name can be assigned at this time are also new records for the state. The collection included a new species of Drepanosticta, yet to be named. Protosticta curiosa was recorded for the first time in Malaysia. These records are combined with existing records of Odonata from Terengganu in the literature to produce a full list of the Odonata known from the state.
