Thrinax (disambiguation)

Last updated

Thrinax is a genus of plants in the palm family (Arecaceae). Thrinax may also refer to:

<i>Thrinax</i> genus of plants

Thrinax is a genus in the palm family, native to the Caribbean. It is closely related to the genera Coccothrinax, Hemithrinax and Zombia. Flowers are small, bisexual and are borne on small stalks.

Tenthredinidae family of insects

Tenthredinidae is the largest family of sawflies, with well over 7,500 species worldwide, divided into 430 genera. Larvae are typically herbivores and feed on the foliage of trees and shrubs, with occasional exceptions that are leaf miners, stem borers, or gall makers. The larvae of externally feeding species resemble small caterpillars. As with all hymenopterans, common sawflies undergo complete metamorphosis.

Proteothrinax baumgartneri is an extinct species of shark. It was classified based on two relatively complete teeth and two isolated crowns, described from the Eocene (Lutetian) Weitwies Subformation in Austria. Due to the limited material available and its similarities to Chlamydoselachus fiedleri, it has been suggested that the criteria with which P. baumgartneri is separated from Chlamydoselachus fiedleri are within the normal variation of Chlamydoselachus. This would therefore make P. baumgartneri a junior synonym to Chlamydoselachus fiedleri and, since there is only one identified species within genus Proteothrinax, the whole genus a junior synonym to Chlamydoselachus.

<i>Chlamydoselachus</i> genus of fishes

Chlamydoselachus is a genus of sharks and the sole extant member of the family Chlamydoselachidae, in the order Hexanchiformes. It contains two extant and several extinct species. The most widely known species still surviving is the frilled shark. It is known as a living fossil, along with Chlamydoselachus africana, also known as the Southern African frilled shark, which is only found along coastal areas of South Africa. The only two extant species of this genus are deep-sea creatures which are typically weakened in areas closer to the surface.

Pamphiliidae family of insects

Pamphiliidae is a small wasp family within Symphyta, containing some 200 species from the temperate regions of North America and Eurasia. The larvae feed on plants, using silk to either build webs or tents, or to roll leaves into tubes, in which they feed, thus earning them the common names leaf-rolling sawflies or web-spinning sawflies. They are distinguished from the closely related Megalodontesidae by their simple, filiform antennae.

<i>Coccothrinax</i> genus of plants

Coccothrinax is a genus of palms in the Arecaceae family. There are more than 50 species described in the genus, plus many synonyms and sub-species. A new species was described as recently as 2006. Many Coccothrinax produce thatch. In Spanish-speaking countries, guano is a common name applied to Coccothrinax palms. The species are native throughout the Caribbean, the Bahamas, extreme southern Florida and southeastern Mexico, but most of the species are known only from Cuba.

<i>Hemithrinax</i> genus of plants

Hemithrinax is a genus of palms that is endemic to eastern Cuba. It comprises three species and one variety and was previously included within the genus Thrinax.

  1. Hemithrinax compacta (Griseb. & H.Wendl.) M.Gómez - Sierra de Nipe in Holguin Province
  2. Hemithrinax ekmaniana Burret - Las Villas in Granma Province
  3. Hemithrinax rivularis León - Sierra de Moa in Holguin Province
<i>Aegyptosuchus</i> genus of reptiles

Aegyptosuchus is an extinct genus of aegyptosuchid eusuchian crocodyliform. This taxon was coined by Kuhn (1936) as a monotypic family-level taxon redundant with the Cretaceous genus Aegyptosuchus. Carroll (1988) classified the genus in the family Stomatosuchidae. Only one species is descript, Aegyptosuchus peyeri.

<i>Leucothrinax</i> species of plant

Leucothrinax morrisii, the Key thatch palm, is a small palm which is native to the Greater Antilles, northern Lesser Antilles, The Bahamas and the Florida Keys. Until 2008 it was known as Thrinax morrisii. It was split from the genus Thrinax after phylogenetic studies showed that its inclusion in Thrinax would render that genus paraphyletic. The generic name combines leuco with thrinax.

<i>Thrinax radiata</i> species of plant

Thrinax radiata, the Florida thatch palm, is a medium to slow growing palm in the family Arecaceae. It is native to many Caribbean islands, Central America, and far southern Florida. Its natural habitat is sandy, calcareous soil in coastal areas.

<i>Hemithrinax compacta</i> species of plant

Hemithrinax compacta is a species of palm that is endemic to Cuba. Hemithrinax compacta flourishes on the mogotes of Cuba. Mogotes are dome-shaped hills in Cuba made up of coral rock. Hemithrinax compacta is the only species in its genus in Cuba that grows in the highlands, at an elevation of 450 metres (1,480 ft). Hemithrinax compacta needs to have more than 2,400 mm (94 in) per year of rainfall and a mean temperature of 22 degrees Celsius (72 °F). The leaves of the palm have an average length of 190 cm (75 in) and the inflorescence of the palm is tightly clustered, giving rise to the species name. A mature H. compacta can have a massive trunk of up to 10 cm (3.9 in) thick and more than 20 m (66 ft) in height. The Thrinax genus has been grown in gardens. In addition, in the Thrinax genus the fruits are dispersed and eaten by red-bellied woodpeckers, birds, gray squirrels and lizards.
