Srimara is a monotypic genus known from a single specimen from Vietnam.


The pronotum is unique. It is without basal impressions but with a bisinuate base and, posterior to it, a prominent tubercle. The pronotum has the shape of an elongated hexagon. The basal scarps of the elytra are deeply bisinuate. The eye is minute and ocelliform. The middle and hind tibiae each have two spurs.

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.
