 Geographic Information
  Geographic Division:    



  Comment: Comments: Includes Harpiola, here recognized as a subgenus, see Corbet and Hill (1980, 1992) although also see Bhattacharyya (2002). The other recognized subgenus, Murina, is sometimes divided into two species groups but there is disagreement about membership; see Corbet and Hill (1992), Maeda and Matsumura (1998), and Kawai et al. (2002)
