* The books these dragons appear in are not published under the Open Gaming License, but the dragons also appear in the System Reference Document or Modern System Reference Document.

While this dragon is Open Game Content, its name is Product Identity.

The dragon is not listed as OGC, but as the rules for the dragon derive from the System Reference Document, I'm told that it is OGC regardless of designation. If you intend to use the dragon in a published work, I highly recommend contacting both a lawyer and the company writing the dragon.

** Chromatic dragoth knights are CR 5; chromatic dragoth adepts are CR 8.

General notes
This is a list of all the dragons I found in various Third Edition products. In general, the list contains creatures with the Dragon type, even if they are not 'true' dragons. Thus, the dragon turtle is included, but not the dracolich, which is undead. Templates are included as long as the result is always a dragon, either as a result of the template (half-dragon) or the requirements (abyssal dragon). Unique dragons are included as long as they are not of an existing type.
The half-dragon has been 'extended' a number of times. Black Falcon Aerie extended it to include gem and Monsters of Faern dragons. City of the Spider Queen also has rules for Monsters of Faern half-dragons. Dragon #300 has rules for its own fiendish half-dragons. There is an excellent alternate half-dragon page Endzone.
BADD (no, not that BADD) has lots of information on dragons: stats, articles, links, etc.

Counting the dragons
It is difficult to count the number of dragons. There are over two hundred entries on the above lists, but some are duplicates (Tiamat appears in two forms, for example, and the mistwood drake appears twice in near-identical forms), templates, and creatures not generally considered dragons but with the Dragon type (e.g. wyrven). Depending on the method used to count the dragons, there could be many fewer.

The names, where possible, link to a source for their stats.

This is the book or website with the dragon. When possible, thse link to EN World's review page for that product; it is a great compillation of reviews (both internal and external), and provides links to important things like errata.

Company names link to their respective websites. While Dragon magazine is now published by Paizo Publishing, it is still owned by Wizards of the Coast.

The wurms from Dragon #296 use nonstandard age categories: Wurmling, Adult Wurm, Greater Wurm, and Elder Wurm. The Slayer's Guide to Dragons uses standard age categories, plus Draco Invictus. The drakes of Draconic Lore have Hatchling, Adult, Old, and Elder Drake. The ELH dragons have special advancement rules for going beyond great wyrm (for the core dragons as well as those in the ELH itself). The wyrm from d20 Modern goes from hatchling to adult.

Is the dragon is released under the terms of the Open Gaming License? (Notice the footnotes!)

Many thanks to Vince "Silver Wyrm" Horrell for help finding the dragons!
