local name: -

size: (?)

extinction date: (?)

The genus Cyathula contains about twenty-eight species, which occur in Africa and Asia but also in North and South America.


The Ceylon Cyathula is considered very likely extinct.

This species can also be found under the synonym Cyathula capitata (Thwaites), but it should not be mistaken for the still extant and quite widely distributed Round-headed Cyathula (Cyathula capitata (Moq.)).
