Character of Fascioculus of unclear phylogenetic status. 

(2) Larval notal shield [see Baetisca/f3=g2 (4)] is compressed dorsoventrally (unlike Baetisca/f4=g3). Plesiomorphy of Fascioculus. Unlike Baetisca/f4=g3, larval head has no frontal projections between antennae bases; there are only genal projections latero-ventrad of antennae bases, which are more or less developed in all Baetisca/f3=g2 (Pescador & Berner 1981: Fig.12b).
