''Pantala flavescens'', the Globe Skimmer or Wandering Glider, is a wide-ranging dragonfly of the family Libellulidae. This species and ''Pantala hymenaea,'' the "Spot-winged Glider", are the only members of the genus ''Pantala'' from the subfamily Pantalinae. It was first described by Fabricius in 1798. It is considered to be the most widespread dragonfly on the planet.
