Containing group: Hesperiinae


It is likely that this group of genera is not monophyletic. Although almost all the genera occur in the Old World tropics, the former subfamily "Megathyminae" falls out within this group.

This page is a Tree of Life Branch Page.

Each ToL branch page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a branch of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a branch and a leaf of the Tree of Life is that each branch can be further subdivided into descendent branches, that is, subgroups representing distinct genetic lineages.

For a more detailed explanation of the different ToL page types, have a look at the Structure of the Tree of Life page.
