are superficially similar in some of the easy characters. Both have apical arista, no preapical bristles on femora, and crossvein m-cu shorter than distal section of Cu. Species of Thrypticus
tend to have pale bristles instead of dark, and males have large genitalia like Medetera
(which is in the same subfamily).
