Autapomorphies of Raptobaetopus.

(1) Mouth apparatus is modified and more deeply adopted to carnivorism, than in Baetopus/g2: 

Labrum without median incision [see Turbanoculata (4)]. 

Mandibles are shortened perpendicular to axis of articulation, incisor is elongate. 

Maxillary canines and distal dentiseta are elongate, being pressed together they form a claw-like structure (similar in shape, but not in composition of parts with that of Prosopistoma/f1=g2 and Ameletopsis/fg1).

Glossae are narrowed in proximal part. 2nd+3rd segment of labial palp [see Baetopus/g1 ()] is thickest near base, narrowing toward apex.

Size. Fore wing length 34 mm (see Tetramerotarsata).

Distribution. Palaearctic and Oriental Region.
