Epipleoneura Williamson, 1915

Epipleoneura Williamson, 1915: 616 –620, 632– 636 (new genus, generic definition based on venational characters. Type species: Epipleoneura lamina Williamson, 1915 , by original designation). Rácenis 1960: 25–27 (history of the genus, list of species, discussion of conflictive species). Donnelly 1998: 115–116 (first record of the genus for Argentina). Pessacq 2008: 521, 523 (phylogenetic analysis of Protoneuridae , Epipleoneura recovered as monophyletic taxon, generic diagnosis and synapomorphies). Von Ellenrieder & Garrison 2008: 7, 28 (modification of key to genus from Pessacq 2008 after transferring a species to new genus Drepanoneura ). Garrison et al. 2010: 342, 347, 352 (inclusion of genus in keys to males and females, generic characterization).

Diagnosis. Male and female epiproct strongly developed, approximately a quarter the length of cercus or more in male, distinctly longer than wide in female, and segment 3 of genital ligula with postero-lateral projections, are unique of this genus. Also diagnostic is the combination of an angled frons; rounded postocular lobes; female posterior lobe of pronotum usually not smoothly convex and/or mesanepisternal plates modified; hind femur relatively long, reaching or surpassing anterior margin of S 1 when folded against sterna; CuP&AA' absent; antenodal space 1 less than twice the length of 2; internal fold of genital ligula absent; paraproct well developed, not longer than S 10 ( Pessacq 2008; Garrison et al. 2010).
