Key to the species of Graphocaecilius

(Modified from Mockford & Sullivan (1986). G. enderleini Williner, (1949) , not included; the original description of this species is focused in body coloration and wing shape, not allowing for the comparisons of genital structures. It is a Bolivian species, that has not been recorded in other countries (GBIF secretariat 2013), suggesting it may be different from the ones here listed).
