Containing group: Omoglymmiina


Shyrodes is a monotypic genus known from one series of specimens from the Ruby Mines in northern Burma.


Shyrodes is similar to Yamatosa, except for the following features: The anterior part of the head is elongate, and the frontal grooves are abbreviated anteriorly. The eye is small, ocelliform, and protruding. The pronotum is without discal strioles. The elytra are relatively short and rounded. The basal scarp of the elytron is oblique medially resulting in a large, triangular depression around the scutellum. The wings are vestigial.

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.
