() 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 siting on substrate) and makes lateral swimming movements by abdomen (unlike most other Ephemeroptera, which make doso-ventral swimming movements). The same in Thraulodes (see Index of characters [1b])
