Generic diagnosis.

This diagnosis is based in part on the key characters used by Londt & Dikow (in press) to differentiate genera in the Manual of Afrotropical Diptera  . Head: Antennal stylus without long setulae; frons approximately the same width at level of antennal insertion and vertex; mystax composed of many setae, none clearly differentiated as macrosetae; compound eye more or less oval in lateral view; anterior tentorial pits small, slit-like, inconspicuous ventrally. Thorax: Prosternum fused to proepisternum; scutellum with apical macrosetae. Legs: Prothoracic tibia without any spine-like tibial processes; pulvilli poorly developed (approximately ½ length of claws). Wing: Vein C extends around wing margin as far as fused CuA and CuP vein, cup and alula well developed; R2+3 ending in C, cell r1 thus open on wing margin; cell m3 closed. Abdomen: T2 wider than long; S1 confined beneath T1; male terminalia rotated through c. 15-45°; female terminalia simple (T10 never divided and without acanthophorite spines).
