The genus extends from Mexico in the north to Brazil and Bolivia in the south, with two species, D. orthacanthos and D. polyacanthos, present in the southeastern Caribbean.In biology, a genus is a low-level taxonomic rank used in the classification of living and fossil organisms, which is an example of definition by genus and differentia. The term comes from Latin genus "descent, family, type, gender," cognate with Greek: - genos, "race, stock, kin."show more
