Genus-level:

Tellervini is a tribe of danaid butterflies with only the one genus Tellervo, with six widely distributed species found in Australia and the Oriental region. The taxon is apparently monophyletic, but its relationship with the other two danaid tribes is yet uncertain. The phylogeography of the group is also a challenge to those who hold to a Cenozoic origin of the butterflies.
