Subgenus Sabethinus Lutz 

Harbach (1991) provided a tabulated comparison of diagnostic and differential characters for the five subgenera of Sabethes  . The tabulation serves, like a dichotomous key, to distinguish the subgenera and to determine to which subgenus, based on adult, larval and pupal characters, a species of Sabethes  belongs. Only three of those characters are unique, i.e. diagnostic, for the subgenus Sabethinus  —the presence of a comb plate and seta 4b-X in larvae, and the dorsal position of seta 8-VII in pupae. The occurrence of these features in the species formally named below immediately identifies them as species of subgenus Sabethinus  .
