Oh my goodness! Unless you are a Tree of Life developer, you really shouldn't be here. This page is part of our beta test site, where we develop new features for the ToL, often messing up a thing or two in the process. Please visit the official version of this page, which is available here.

Containing group: Dhysorina


The genus Neodhysores is found only in southeastern Brazil. There are only three known specimens, representing two species.


The representatives of Neodhysores have two setae on the labrum. The pronotum has angular and about five marginal setae. There are minor setae on antennomeres VI-X. The prefrontal pits are oblique, prominent, and separated by less tban half the width of one of them. The postantennal pits are prominent. The orbital groove is absent. The discal striole extends nearly to the anterior margin of the pronotum. The eye and the hind wing are large and normal.

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.
