References. Sroka & Soldan 2008:XI.Cof.Eph.*:


Autapomorphies of Sparsorythus.

(1) Maxillary palp [muscle-less see Ephemerella/fg1 (1), elongated see Tricorygnatha (1)] is completely lost. Non-unique apomorphy (see Index of characters [1.1.41]), but not found in other Tricorygnatha. As larvula of Tricorygnatha has no maxillary palp [see Tricorygnatha (1)] (Kluge 2010: Fig.33), and in all cases maxillary palp is muscle-less, the loss of maxillary palp can be repeatable.

(2) Genitals of all known species have similar structure: penis narrow, with slightly widened apical part, with apical cleft very small; 1st segment of gonostylus relatively short (Kluge 2010: Fig.81-82).

Size. Larval body length 38 mm.

Distribution. Oriental Region.
