Sarinda Click on an image to view larger version & data in a new window
These and Synemosyna make up our only representatives of this large cosmotropical
subfamily of ant mimics. Sarinda tend to be more robust in body. The palpi
are large and the embolus fixed to the tegulum, unlike the case in Peckhamia
For more information and links to the species, go to Sarinda in the Tree of Life.
