Autapomorphis of Atalophleboculata.

(1) In males of all stages (imago, subimago and larva), facets of dorsal portion of compound eye are square (on ventral portion of compound eye facets are hexagonal, as well as in other Ephemeroptera) (Kluge 1984: Fig.1-3). Unique apomorphy: in other Ephemeroptera square facets are not found; square facets are found in some other Euarthropoda (Eucrustacea, Trilobita), but there is no division of eye to the portions peculiar for Ephemeroptera (Peters & Gillies 1995).

(2) Labrum lost stout setae on distal margin [see Leptophlebia/fg1 (2)]; median incision of anterior margin has a several flat denticles. In some taxa labrum is modified and these denticles are lost, sometimes incision is lost (see Index of characters [1.1.16]).

Size. Fore wing length 215 mm.

Age and distribution. World-wide.
