Autapomorphies of Kimminsula/g1.
() In larva short stout setae on anterior (dorsal) side of femora are arranged differently on different leg pairs: on middle and hind legs they form transverse row near base, on fore legs not forming the row.
() Tergalii ...
() Larva (whose body is flattened and widened, being adopted for inhabitance under stones on current, as in many other Atalophlebolinguata) has unusual mode of swimming: it keeps legs laterally semi-bent in knees (as if sitting on substrate) and makes lateral swimming movements by abdomen (unlike most other Ephemeroptera, which make dorso-ventral swimming movements). The same in Thraulodes (see Index of characters [1b])
