Autapomorphy of Timpanoga/fg2.

(1) Tergalii are more or less operculate: Tergalius IV [the anteriormost among lamellate tergalii – see Timpanoga/fg1 (1)] is enlarged, covers not less than 1/2 of tergalius V. Abdominal segments bearing tergalii have enlarged lateral lobes: at least on each of abdominal segments V–VII posterolateral process is longer than segment in its middle part (Kluge 2004: Fig.91:I).

Plesiomorphy of Timpanoga/fg2. Unlike Attenella, distal segment of gonostylus is not elongate.

Size. Fore wing length 6–14 mm.
