As pointed out by Faxon (1884:140), the descriptions of P. advena and C. carolinus were transposed in Hagen's monograph, and pl. 1: figs. 51-54 and pl. 3: fig. 165 are actually of P. advena. (See Hobbs, 1981: 311-312 for a detailed bibliography and explanation).

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.
