1 Wing with brown (dark) spots at crossvein r-m, at bifurcation of R 4 and R 5, and at apex of cell d, other spots also may be present; bifurcation of R 4 and R 5 proximal to or level with apex of cell d....................................... Eucyrtopogon 

- Wing hyaline or darkened (infuscated), or if brown spots are present (some Cyrtopogon  and Heteropogon  ), not in the three positions given above; bifurcation of R 4 and R 5 distal to apex of cell d............................................ 2

2 Face strongly convex or inflated, when viewed from side extending greater than length of antennal scape past eye margin; dorsocentral bristles of thorax setae like or lacking; moderate to abundant pile on scutum.................... Cyrtopogon 

- Face flat or slightly convex; dorsocentral bristles well developed, prominent; little or no pile on scutum................. 3
