This tree diagram shows the relationships between several groups of organisms.
The root of the current tree connects the organisms featured in this tree to their containing group and the rest of the Tree of Life. The basal branching point in the tree represents the ancestor of the other groups in the tree. This ancestor diversified over time into several descendent subgroups, which are represented as internal nodes and terminal taxa to the right.
You can click on the root to travel down the Tree of Life all the way to the root of all Life, and you can click on the names of descendent subgroups to travel up the Tree of Life all the way to individual species.close box
A mainly neotropical genus. Two species, Anartia lytrea and A. chrysopelea, occur in the greater Antilles. A. jatrophae, the white peacock, is widespread from the southern U. S. throughout tropical South America. A. fatima occurs in Mexico and Central America and meets South American A. amathea in Panama, where the two intermingle in a hybrid zone (Dasmahaptra et al. 2003).
