Containing group: Gehringiini


This species is known only from one male specimen from the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt.  Riccardo Sciaky recognized that it was a gehringiine in 1986 (Deuve, in litt.).  It has been redescribed, and formally placed within Gehringiini, by Deuve (2005).

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.
