Photo courtesy Paige Gill, Florida National Marine Sanctuary. The branches of the elkhorn coral are flat and broad, resembling the antlers of elk or moose. Crawford et al. erected a number of higher taxa, e.g. the group Trionychia for the Carettochelyidae and Trionychidae. However, they did not precisely define which genera are in each group (as theyr phylogeny contains only a third or so of all turtle genera), hence we do not use them in the database yet.

In this model, the genus is the first name, and the species is the second name, with the first letter of the genus name always capitalized. Therefore, each organism is sorted by a genus, species classification, such as Homo sapien for man. Linnaeus also proposed to expand the genus-species nomenclature to include larger units of likeness, for. Pappus.—The genus is characterized by the absence of the pappus, although occasionally in the taxa of the United States, especially H. helianthoides ssp. scabra, the pappus is rarely represented by chaffy awns or a crenulate ridge. Geographic Distribution of the Genus The known areas of distribution of Heliopsis are shown on the maps which.

Get this from a library. Species-group taxa of the false coral snake genus Pliocercus. [Hobart M Smith; David Chiszar]. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Pliocercus euryzonus, commonly known as Cope's false coral snake, is a species of snake in the subfamily Dipsadinae of the family Colubridae.

In preparation of accounts for Pliocercus and its species-group taxa for the Catalogue of American Amphibians and Reptiles, we have become aware of a change in the arrangement we proposed in that must be made in ad-vance.

The nominal species, Pliocercus psychoides Smith and Chiszar (), was based on a sin-gle specimen, American Museum of Natural. Publication in non-peer-reviewed outlets: The case of Smith and Chiszar's "Species-Group Taxa of the False Coral Snake Genus Pliocercus".

Urotheca includes those species previously placed in the lateristriga group of the genus Rhadinaea and the coral snake mimics usually referred to the genus Pliocercus.

MYERS () believes that probably all species of Rhadinaea and the related genus Coniophanes may be venomous; he considers Pliocercus to be a direct offshoot of the lateristriga species group of Rhadinaea.

It is therefore not surprising that Pliocercus is also venomous, in light of this close phylo- genetic relationship.
