Introduction

A diverse genus of showy African forest butterflies. Nearly half of the 190 or so species have been described recently by J. Hecq. Association of names with subgenera and species groups here follows Larsen (2005) for the west African taxa, the remainder are incertae sedis pending a phylogenetic analysis.

Discussion of Phylogenetic Relationships

The placement of species into subgenera is based on Larsen (2005).

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.
