Autapomorphies of Isca/fg2.

(1) Abdominal tergites extend around to venter of abdomen, thus tergalii [see (2)] are attached ventrally [see Isca/fg1 (3)].

(2) Tergalii I are lost, and tergalii II are the largest. Tergalii II–VI are bilamellate [see Leptophlebia/fg1 (10)]; tergalii VII either also bilamellate (in lea [Isca]) or unilamellate (in other know species).

(3) Moult from subimago to imago occurs in male only, being lost in female (see Index of characters [2]) [adults are shortly-moulting – see Isca/fg1 (4)].

Characters of Isca/fg2 of unclear phylogenetic status. 

(4) Larvae of all species have uniform structure: ???

Size. Fore wing length 2.5–4.5 mm.
