Pair of lobes at distal end of labral mask each with 0–6 setae, but attached moveable hook without setae. Ligula (distal part of palm of mask) usually without median cleft, mask roughly triangular or square (not stalked as in Lestidae). Each side of median line with either 0, 1, or 3–5, dorsal premental setae (hairs inside the palm of the mask). Mature larvae 13–25 mm long.
