Beata Click on an image to view larger version & data in a new window
The single US species placed in this genus is misplaced; it is apparently
more closely related to Hentzia or Anicius.
The true Beata are large stout hairy species of the neotropics.
For more information and links to the species, go to Beata in the Tree of Life.
IdentificationSmall, somewhat beetle-like. Resembles Sassacus but genitalia distinctive, like those of Hentzia.
