Foetterleia Viloria 2004

Foetterleia schreineri (Foetterle 1902)

Andrew V. Z. Brower
Containing group: Pronophilina


A monotypic genus from the mountains near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Although it bears a superficial resemblance to some Andean genera, such as Oxeoschistus, Viloria (2007) suggests based on its wing venation the genus is most closely-related to Eteona.

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.
