Autapomorphies of Tanzaniops.

(1) Penial bridge has wide semicircular median incision (Kluge & Novikova 2011: Fig.132, 140). This character is known for spinosa [Tanzaniella] and lunamontana [Acentrella (Tanzaniops)], while genital structure of gorillora [Tanzaniella] is unknown.

(2) Paraglossal muscle of labium is longitudinal and parallel to the glossal muscle (Kluge & Novikova 2011: Fig.128) (unlike other Turbanoculata, whose paraglossal muscle is oblique and overlaps glossal muscle ventrally). This character is known for lunamontana [Acentrella], while for other species of Tanzaniops labial musculature is not described.

(3) Larval abdominal terga have more or less prominent median projections (Kluge & Novikova 2011: Fig.125-126)  

Plesiomorphies of Tanzaniops. Unlike Jubabaetis/g2, larval tarsus has no long subapical seta.

Size. Fore wing length 56 mm (see Tetramerotarsata).

Distribution. Afrotropical Region.
