Harveyope andresi (Rodríguez, Constantino & Salazar 2011) descibed in Adelotypa

Andrew V. Z. Brower
Containing group: Harveyope


A recently-described species from central Colombia.  Females are unknown.

Discussion of Phylogenetic Relationships

Evidently preferring the broader circumscription of Callaghan and Lamas (2004) over more recent phylogenetic hypotheses, Rodríguez et al. (2011) described this species in the genus Adelotypa.  However, they indicated that it is closely-related to Harveyope zerna (Hewitson, 1872).  Given the classification employed in these pages, the species is therefore placed in Harveyope stat. nov.

Type material

holotype:  male.  Colombia:  Antioquia, El Retiro, 2300-2600 m. 22 June 2002.  leg. G. Ramírez.

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.
