Brief Summary

Read full entry


Kanakopsis contains only the species K. amieuensis from New Caldeonia. It is known only from a single specimen which was collected in a flight trap, and nothing is known about its biology. The species was only first described in 2006 (Caterino, 2006).

According to recent analyses, Kanakopsis and Chlamydonia represent early diverging branches from the lineage leading to the 'hidden scutellum group' (Pheidoliphila, Eucurtiopsis, Orectoscelis, and others). Current data do not support a sister group status between these New Caledonian genera.
