This tree diagram shows the relationships between several groups of organisms.
The root of the current tree connects the organisms featured in this tree to their containing group and the rest of the Tree of Life. The basal branching point in the tree represents the ancestor of the other groups in the tree. This ancestor diversified over time into several descendent subgroups, which are represented as internal nodes and terminal taxa to the right.
You can click on the root to travel down the Tree of Life all the way to the root of all Life, and you can click on the names of descendent subgroups to travel up the Tree of Life all the way to individual species.

IntroductionA widespread neotropical genus of mostly lowland forest species, most of which are uncommon. Adults often rest on the undersides of leaves, and males perch on treetrunks or leaves to patrol for females, often for just an hour or two at very specific times of day(Hall, 2005).
Discussion of Phylogenetic RelationshipsThe tree represents Hall's (2005) hypothesis based on morphology.
