Nellosana intermedia

W. Eugene Hall
Containing group: Nellosana


As the species name implies, the length of N. intermedia (0.73 mm) lies between the extremes of length between species of Nellosana. This species is reddish-brown in color and robust, long and narrow in form (Johnson, 1982).

This species occurs in New Zealand (Auckland) and has been collected in rotten, damp wood (Melicytus sp.)

This page is a Tree of Life Leaf Page.

Each ToL leaf page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a leaf at the tip of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a leaf and a branch of the Tree of Life is that a leaf cannot generally be further subdivided into 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.
