Philogenia Selys 1862 

A large genus, with 36 described species, six of which are recorded in Ecuador with another species or two ques- tionably occurring. See Calvert (1924) and Bick & Bick (1988) for species identification, based mainly on males. The adults are drably colored ( Fig. 53View FIGURE 53) and species identification relies mainly on male appendage morphology. Nymphs live in edges of very small streams and seepage runs, in forested areas. Five of the six species in Ecuador are endemic to the country.
