general taxon notes:

Tayloria rudolphiana is a very good example of disjunct species between Europe and East Asia. Koponen (1992) provided a detailed discussion of this relationship. The species appears to be restricted to southwestern China. Koponen (1992) cited several more specimens from Yunnan province.
