This tree diagram shows the relationships between several groups of organisms.

The root of the current tree connects the organisms featured in this tree to their containing group and the rest of the Tree of Life. The basal branching point in the tree represents the ancestor of the other groups in the tree. This ancestor diversified over time into several descendent subgroups, which are represented as internal nodes and terminal taxa to the right.

Tree after Bell and Bell 1982
Containing group: Omoglymmius


Laminoglymmius is a subgenus with seven species. It occurs in the Oriental region, from the Andaman Islands and Malay Peninsula to New Guinea.


The antenna has basal setae on the outer segments, but it lacks an apical stylet. The clypeal setae are absent. The medial angles of the temporal lobes have translucent areas. The medial angles are either simple, or they are divided into two or three medial angles. In the latter cases, the extra angles are closely spaced, with only a shallow emargination separating them. Most species have a conspicuous postorbital tubercle.

Omoglymmius (Laminoglymmius) oberthueri. (A) Dorsal view of head and pronotum. (B) Lateral view of head. Modified from Bell and Bell (1982). Copyright © 1982 Ross T. Bell and Joyce R. Bell.

The punctures of the abdominal sterna are numerous and scattered. The female has small, simple lateral pits on sternum IV. The spur of the middle tibia is curved. The males have a small, simple hind calcar.

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.
