Genus Uradolichos Moulds, 2012  

Uradolichos Moulds, 2012: 233–235   .

Type species. Urabunana longipennis Ashton, 1914   . By original designation.

Included species. longipennis ( Ashton, 1914)   n.comb.; rotunda   n.sp.

Revised diagnosis

As defined by Moulds (2012) with the following additions: Fore wing veins M and CuA with their stems either completely fused as one, closely abutted for some distance, or separated on meeting the basal cell.

Male genitalia. Pygofer caudal beak broad, short, not well developed; upper pygofer lobe shape in lateral view with basal portion of dorsal margin strongly angled to axis of pygofer, very broad basally and tapering to a broad apex; pygofer basal lobe flap-like, sometimes turned inwards; pygofer secondary basal lobe shape fold-like with outer face rounded, in lateral view projecting and broadly rounded, in ventral view either closely aligned with pygofer margin or projecting to varying extent but always totally fused to pygofer margin at rear. Uncus in dorsal view linear, dorsal surface flat or domed. Claspers in lateral view long, projecting outward far beyond margin of pygofer, cavernous below for most of length, extreme basal region concave and not developed forward. Theca trifid, that is with a pair of dorsal pointed pseudoparameres and a pointed ventral support surrounding an exposed endotheca; pseudoparameres robust, flattened or rounded in cross section, arising independently at the base, distal ends turned outwards, in lateral view adjacent to or close by theca and not arched high above it; endotheca with shaft parallel-sided in apical region, in lateral view about as broad as or broader than pseudoparameres, dorsal region sclerotized similar to that of lateral and ventral surfaces, apex with margin either lacking serrations or partly serrated but not continuously around lateral and ventral margins and apically without lateral “wing-like” flanges or a spine-like projection at each lateroventral corner.
