Species and subgeneric diversity along the elevational gradient. In the lowland tropical forest (< 1,000 m) only B. haemorrhoidalis, B. albopleuralis, and B. breviceps were observed. With increasing elevation, we found an increasing diversity of species. The relatively low diversity at > 4,000 m may represent a sampling bias, since only a few locations were accessible.
