Aribo, however, does not spell out this point, but chooses instead to use the device of brevitas: he simply states that since the formal dissimilarities of the tetrachords would be evident to all if they were to be divided disjunctly, it `is not necessary' to enumerate them fully: `Item diversitas occurreret, si penitus disiuncta fuissent tetrachorda; quae omnia, quia satis sunt manifesta, non est opus dicere plenius.
The so-called geometrics of the bee-hive, or of the flies' eyes, are (upon closer inspection) mere approximates of such as the Human Mind imagines--and then "reads into" the microcosms of Nature--as are the idealized circles of suns, the rectangles of rock formation, or those fractured symmetries of the Crystalline so prized by humans, all approximations of The Geometrical Mind (including Towns and Farms) which when presented to human sensibility are prized simply because the imaging of them (through the viscous meaty orbs of human receptivity) is more easily absorbed as corollary of a mental ideal than, say, the ordinarily overwhelming multiplicity of most of Nature's irregularly globular and disjunctly fretted entanglementof-curves impinging (via radiant waves) upon the senses.
We treat Laniisoma elegans as a polytypic species following Kirwan and Green (2011, contra the IOC: Gill and Donsker 2012) that is discontinuously distributed in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest as well as even more disjunctly in the foothills of the Andes, from southwest Venezuela south to northern Bolivia (Ridgely and Tudor 1994, Snow 2004).
