Autapomorphies of Tasmanophlebia/g1.

(1) On hind wing bifurcation of MP [the third triad – see Euplectoptera (1)] is nearer to wing margin than to wing base, more distal than bifurcations of RS and MA (photo ). Non-unique apomorphy (see Index of characters [2.2.69]).

(2) Tergalii V–VII are lost, and other tergalii have true operculate structure [see Vetulata (1)] (Kluge 2004: Fig.33:A): tergalii I are much larger than others and completely cover them (photos ); bases of tergalii II–IV are shifted anteriorly; lateral margins of abdominal segment II are bent dorsally forming a basket for the gill-opercula. Only tergalii II–IV are able for respiratory movements and serve as gills, while tergalii I serve as gill opercula and immovably lie horizontally (photo ). Unlike Oniscigaster/fg2, anal-proximal lobe of each tergalius II–IV [see Vetulata (2)] is bent dorsally, with smooth margin (according to Tillyard 1933, in lacuscoerulei [T.] this lobe is developed on tergalius IV only).

(3) Imaginal and subimaginal paracercus is vestigial (photos ). Non-unique apomorphy (see Index of characters [2.3.22]).

Plesiomorphies of Tasmanophlebia/g1. Unlike some Oniscigaster/fg2, imaginal and subimaginal abdomen has no lateral projections (photos ).

Size. Fore wing length 10–14 mm.

Distribution. Australia and Chile.
