Autapomorphy of Macdunnoa.

(1) Tergalius VII [see Stenonema/fg1 (3)] has a form of very small vestige (at least in persimplex [Heptagenia] and brunnea [Macdunnoa]; in original description of nipawinia [M.] is said that tergalii VII are lost). Tergalius VI is strongly diminished.

Character of Macdunnoa of unclear phylogenetic status

(2) Tergalii I–VI with rounded apex. The same in Stenonema/fg3.

Size. Fore wing length 6–9 mm. 

Distribution. Nearctic.
