Bhutantis ludlowi is known only from the type series collected in the Trashiyangsi valley in northeastern Bhutan (Type locality) in 1933 and 1934 (Gabriel, 1942). Recently it has also been collected in China, southwestern Sezchuan (Coote, 2000; Anonymous [2005]). Practically nothing is known about the life history of this species. For further information, see Collins and Morris (1985).

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.
