Autapomorphy of Procloeon/g1.

(1) In larva, at distal part of cerci, each cercomere bears on its outer (lateral) side one large spine directed posteriorly; usually this spine is spindle-like thickened and its length exceeds length of cercomere (Kluge & al. 2014: Fig.1-3; Kluge 2016: Fig.21-22, 59-60). A unique apomorphy: in some other taxa spines of posterior margins of cercomeres are also enlarged on outer side, but in this case outer side of cercomere bears more than one spine, and these spines are not so long and thickened.

Cerci and paracercus often without long bare last segments (the same in Pseudocentroptilum; possibly, synapomorphy) in some species area of cercus with large spines on outer side is followed by additional terminal part consisted on slender bare cercomeres.

Size. Fore wing length 48 mm (see Tetramerotarsata).

Distribution. Arctogea (Holarctic, Oriental and Afrotropical Regions).
