 gen. Adnoptilum Gattolliat & Monaghan 2010


References. Gattolliat & Monaghan 2010:


Autapomorphies of Adnoptilum.

(1) Larval paracercus shortened, shorter than 2/3 of length of cerci (unlike other Rhithrocloeon/fg2, whose larval paracercus is equal to cerci). The same in many other Turbanoculata.

Characters of Adnoptilum of unclear phylogenetic status. 

(2) Hind wings absent; larva has no vestiges of hind protoptera (non-unique apomorphy see Index of characters [2.2.59]). Among Rhithrocloeon/fg1, the same in Rhithrocloeon/fg3; Mutelocloeon has vestigial hind wings; possibly, synapomorphy.

Size. Fore wing length 45 mm (see Tetramerotarsata).

Distribution. Afrotropical Region.
