Autapomorphy of Notacanthurus.

(1) Larval abdominal terga have a longitudinal median ridge; on each tergite this ridge can be stretched posteriorly in a form of a spine producing behind posterior margin of tergite (Tshernova 1972: Fig.2). This apomorphy is not unique (see Index of characters [1.3.3]), but not found in other Heptagenia/f5=g4; among Heptagennota similar dorsal spines occur in selected species of Epeorus/fg1 only.

Plesiomorphies of Notacanthurus. Unlike Afronurus/g1 and Electrogena, penis [see Pentamerotarsata (5)] has contiguous median titillators and distinct ventral and outer sclerites; in various species, ventral sclerite can be enlarged and pointed (Tshernova 1972: Fig.1), or short and blunt.

Size. Fore wing length 1014 mm.

Distribution. Middle and Eastern Asia.
