Tellervini Fruhstorfer, 1910

Tellervini is a tribe of danaid butterflies with only the one genus Tellervo, with six widely distributed species found in the Australasian realm and the Indomalayan realm (also called 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.
