Ross T. Bell
Containing group: Kaveinga


Angekiva is a subgenus with three known species. They are found in eastern Australia, from Queensland to Tasmania.


The antennal stylet is present or absent, and the antenna is without pollinosity. The median groove of the pronotum is coarsely punctate. The paramedian grooves are coarsely to sparsely punctate, curved, and more or less linear, except at the extreme base. Pollinosity is largely limited to the punctures. The angular seta is present or absent. The marginal seta is absent. The prosternum is coarsely punctate, and these punctures are either generally distributed or else they are limited to the margins of the precoxal carinae. The elytral striae are glabrous. The middle tibiae are without lateral setae or serrulation.

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.
