Description of adults: "Galea spirally turned and equal to maxillary palps; labial palps about 2/3 lenght of latter. Knees of forelegs with epiphysis. Venation of forewings complete, radial cella discernable, On hindwings M1 and M2 converga at base, and medial cell present" (Kozlov 1987).

Distribution:

The genus is known only from Baltic amber in the Baltic region, where it is represented by two species.

Diagnosis:

Following Kozlov (987), the genus is closest to the recent genus Infurcitinea Spuler, 1910, from which it differs in the much shorter length of the galea.
