Autapomorphies of Haplohyphes.

(1) Larval mouthparts are modified, maxilla is filtering, widened apically, with long apical setae.

(2) Distal segment of gonostylus [initially single see Ephemerella/fg1 (8)] is lost (non-unique apomorphy see Index of characters [2.3.12]).

Plesiomorphies of Haplohyphes. Unlike Tricorythodes: Scuto-lateropostnotal muscle of metathorax is not so large, posterior scutal protuberances are not convergent posteriorly, lateropostnotum is not fused with epimeron (the same in Leptohyphes/fg2). Lateroparapsidal suture somewhat retains curvation initial for Ephemerella/fg1 [see Leptohyphes/fg1 (4)], merging with transverse interscutal suture laterad of medioparapsidal suture. Hind wings [of peculiar structure see Leptohyphes/fg1 (2)] are present in both sexes; metathoracic wing muscles S.ESm and MTm are retained both in male and in female. 1st tarsal segment is short and fused with tibia.

Unlike Leptohyphes/fg2: Tergalius II (gill operculum) has well-developed costal flap of ventral lobe [see Leptohyphes/fg1 (1)].

Size. Fore wing length 46.5 mm (see Tricoryptera). 

Distribution. Neotropical Region.
