Omoglymmius (Carinoglymmius)

Ross T. Bell
Containing group: Omoglymmius


Carinoglymmius is a small subgenus with three species from Borneo, Sumatra, and the Andaman Islands.


The antenna is without an apical stylet. The clypeal setae are absent. The paramedian and marginal grooves of the pronotum are dilated. The outer carinae of the pronotum are very narrow and linear, while the inner carinae are variously developed. The eye is large and deep. The temporal setae are absent. Elytral setae are numerous, with complete series on intervals II, IV, and VI. The spur of the middle tibia is straight. The abdominal sterna III-V each have one transverse row of coarse punctures. The female has lateral pits that are deeper on sternum IV than on sternum V.

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.
