Typhlocyba furcifrons Jacobi, 1941
Dorsum beige, yellow or white. Vertex unicolorous or with pair of preapical spots or with large median apical spot. Scutellum pale with or without dark lateral triangles or entirely dark.
Head narrower than pronotum, fore margin weakly produced, broadly rounded. Forewing with outer apical cell short; hind wing submarginal vein not extended to wing apex.
Male pygofer lobe with oblique dorsolateral internal ridge, usually with sparse long fine setae on lateral surface; dorsal appendage movably articulated; ventral appendages absent. Subgenital plates with 2-6 basal macrosetae. Style apex with extension; preapical lobe prominent. Connective Y-shaped, with central lobe well developed. Aedeagus with or without processes, gonopore apical on ventral surface. Anal tube usual with basal processes.
The genus is similar Tautoneura Anufriev, 1969 externally (body slim, dorsum yellow or white, head and face narrow) but the forewing lacks the red dots found in Tautoneura. It also differs in having the male pygofer lobe with basolateral setae not distinctly enlarged, and the pygofer without ventral appendages. The genus is also similar to Empoascanara Distant, 1918 in the male genitalia although differing in having the subgenital plate microsetae on the dorsal margin not in groups and the style with a 2nd extension. It differs externally from Emopoascanara in its narrower head.
