Examples of "dichrous"
is a species of fungus in the family Meruliaceae. First described as "Polyporus
" by Elias Magnus Fries in 1815, it was later transferred to the genus "Gloeoporus" by Italian mycologist Giacomo Bresadola in 1912. The variety "G.
" var. "niger" (formerly known as "Ceriporiopsis nigra") was proposed in 2008 after molecular analysis revealed the two taxa were conspecific.
The grey crested tit ("Lophophanes
") is a species of bird in the Paridae family.
is a species of beetle in the family Cerambycidae. It was described by Gounelle in 1906.
The larvae feed on "Actinanthella wyliei", "Agelanthus natalitius", "Moquinella rubra", "Oncocalyx fischeri", "Plicosepalus curviflorus", "Plicosepalus kalachariensis" and "Tapinanthus
is a species of ground beetle in the subfamily Pterostichinae. It was described by Tschitscherine in 1897.
The bicolor butterflyfish, Prognathodes
, is a species of butterflyfish found in atlantic waters. It is also known as the "bastard cunningfish" and "hedgehog butterflyfish".
Although rarely seen, "Prognathodes
" is normally observed in pairs, but can also be found in large groups in deeper reefs.
is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Muricidae, the murex snails or rock snails.
is a species of flowering plant found in mountainous regions of South Sudan, Kenya and Uganda. It has relatively small flowers usually hidden under large green or rose coloured bracts.
This extraordinarily lethal poison is very rare. "Batrachotoxin" is only found in three poisonous frogs from Colombia (genus "Phyllobates") and three poisonous birds from Papua New Guinea: "Pitohui
", "Pitohui kirhocephalus", and "Ifrita kowaldi". Other related toxins, histrionicotoxin and pumiliotoxin, are found in frog species from the genus "Dendrobates".
These taxa could not be included in the most recent studies due to lack of material. The case of "gunax" seems fairly straightforward – as certainly as this can possibly be said in the absence of new data, it belongs to the "bailloni" clade either as a distinct subspecies, or, more likely, as yet another synonym of "
The hooded pitohui ("Pitohui
") is a is a species of pitohui in the family Oriolidae found in New Guinea. It has black and orange plumage and both sexes have colored patches. It is one of the few known poisonous birds.
Clearly, some mechanism blocking gene flow is at work, but what this is exactly remains unknown – though as remarked above, separate breeding seasons seem a reasonable assumption and are tentatively supported by the available field data. In addition, it is entirely mysterious why such a mechanism should apply in the rather limited and ecologically homogeneous north-western Indian Ocean range, but not in the ecologically more diverse and by far larger Pacific range of "
The total population has not been definitively quantified. Subspecies "P. b.
" is estimated to number 1,000–10,000 pairs on the Line Islands and 10,000–100,000 pairs on the Phoenix Islands, with the nominate subspecies thought to number 3,000–5,000 pairs on Réunion and fewer than 100 individuals on Europa (reviewed by Brooke 2004), though it is thought there are many more breeding colonies on other islands in the Pacific. The population seems to be stable.
This group is the most confusing of all. The subspecies "
" occurs in two areas which appear to be separated by the whole of Indonesia and the seas surrounding it; the Pacific subpopulation includes the proposed subspecies "polynesiae" (Ta‘ū, American Samoa) and possibly "gunax" (see below), whereas the geographically separated Indian Ocean subpopulation contains the birds formerly separated as "nicolae" (NW Indian Ocean, from Aldabra to the Maldives) and "colstoni" (Aldabra, Arabian Sea).
The case of the more distinct "bannermani", the range of which is parapatric to that of the Pacific "
", is more complicated. It has for some time been proposed as a distinct species, Bannerman's shearwater ("P. bannermani"). In the absence of more recent data to investigate this claim, its status continues to be altogether unresolved, though the case for it being at least a distinct subspecies in the "bailloni" clade seems good.
There appear to be no significant genetical or morphological differences between these birds, which is quite amazing given that the Pacific and Indian Ocean subpopulations must have been isolated for a fairly long time, and that no less than three unequivocally distinct subspecies ("bailloni", "persicus" and "temptator") occur within the range of Indian Ocean "
". On the other hand, the supposed species Mascarene shearwater ("P. atrodorsalis") is inseparable morphologically and genetically from "bailloni".
The genus Pelecinus is the only living member of the family Pelecinidae (there are also two fossil genera), and contains only three species, restricted to the New World. One species, "Pelecinus polyturator", occurs from North through South America, and the others occur in Mexico ("Pelecinus thoracicus") and South America ("Pelecinus
"). The females are glossy wasps, very long (up to 7 cm) and the abdomen is extremely attenuated, used to lay eggs directly on scarab larvae buried in the soil.
