Parotis spp.

Numerous species of Parotis are known from India. Parotis species are difficult to identify from images only, and need examination of male genitalia and/or molecular phylogeny. Hence, species level identities are difficult using photographs only. This page shows a gallery of Parotis spp. if these individuals are identified to the species level in the future, they will be moved to the respective species pages. We would welcome feedback from experts who are able to provide an insight into species identities. Comments and feedback on the page or specific images can be provided by using the link at the bottom of the page and by quoting the specific media code provided in the image.
