Simothraulopsis Demoulin


Simothraulopsis Demoulin 

This genus, currently represented by five species, is widely distributed in Northern South America. It is related to the genera Farrodes  and Homothraulus  . While Farrodes  is widely distributed in the Americas, Homothraulus  has only been collected in Northeastern Argentina, Uruguay and Southeastern Brazil (Paraná basin). It appears then that Simothraulopsis  present a vicariant distribution with its sister group Homothraulus  .
