Containing group: Cladiopsocidae


The monophyly of Cladiopsocus is supported by the presence of a sclerotized prong on the posterior border of the male paraprocts, and on the leg, three-segmented tarsi, and the presence of a spine anterior to the pulvillus (Casasola González 2006).

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.
