GENUS Ectophylla

Author:H. Allen, 1892.
Citation:Proc. U.S. Natl. Mus., 15: 441.
Type Species:Ectophylla alba H. Allen, 1892.
Comments:Subtribe Ectophyllina. Some authors have treated Mesophylla as a junior synonym; see Goodwin and Greenhall (1962), Simmons and Voss (1998), and Wetterer et al. (2000). However, relationships of these taxa remain unclear (see Owen [1987] and Baker et al. [2000]), so Mesophylla is treated here as a distinct genus pending further study.
