Neochauna variabilis

Keith Bayless
Containing group: Pachygastrinae


Neochauna variabilis is native to the Neotropical region, from Brazil and Peru north to Mexico (Woodley 2001).


Neochauna can be distinguished from other Neotropical Pachygastrinae by the two scutellar spines and the third and/or fourth antennal flagellomere strongly divided (Woodley 2008).

This page is a Tree of Life Leaf Page.

Each ToL leaf page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a leaf at the tip of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a leaf and a branch of the Tree of Life is that a leaf cannot generally be further subdivided into 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.
