Seokia Sibatani 1943

Seokia pratti (Leech 1890)

Ussuriensia Nekrutenko 1960 subjective junior synonym

Andrew V. Z. Brower
Containing group: Limenitidini


A monotypic genus formerly included in Limenitis but shown by Mullen (2006) to be more closely related to Athyma.


The generic name Ussuriensia was proposed by Nekrutenko (1960) for a subspecies of Seokia pratti (see Cowan 1970). Bridges (1988) inadvertently included this name in his Theclini.

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.
