Autapomorphies of Clypeocaenis/fg3.

(1) Larval frons between antennae bases is projected anteriorly and bears 2 or more very long setae directed anteriorly (Kluge 2004: Fig.88:I). This frontal projection corresponds to anterior ocellar protuberance occurring in some other taxa of Caenoptera (see Index of characters [1.1.6]) (in the past it was wrongly taken for clypeos, with this the generic name "Clypeocaenis" was connected).

(2) Long filtering setae on inner and dorsal side of fore tibia and tarsus [see Clypeocaenis/fg2 (2)] form regular rows: two transverse rows on tibia and one oblique row on tarsus. Unique apomorphy.

(3) Each mandible on its outer side with 2 regular transverse rows of long setae (instead of irregular setae present in other Caenoptera).

Size. Fore wing length 25 mm.

Distribution. Asia and Africa (Iran, India, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Upper Volta, South Africa).
