Family Trichoceridae Kertesz, 1902 

Genus Trichocera Meigen, 1803 

Subgenus Saltrichocera Krzeminska, 2002 

Subgenus Saltrichocera  was established for the inclusion of the species of Trichocera  with simple gonostyles and gonocoxites, separated and highly arched bridge, and large aedeagal complex (Krzeminska, 2002). As the newly described species possesses all these features, it is therefore assigned to the subgenus Saltrichocera  .
