Schuhirandella shares some characters with this group of genera, such as oval and robust body, short antennae and legs, antennal segment I shorter than width of vertex, and subclavate or clavate
antennal segments III and IV.
Antennae: AI red-brown, with apex red; AII mostly testaceous, apical clavate
region red; AIII and AIV testaceous, sometimes with weak orange highlighting.
Also, Karsch had not cited any clavate
setae on the pedipalp coxa.
terete, with many dark brown, setiform and ciliform hairs 1-3 mm long; simple and branched clavate
hairs of crosiers and young fronds sometimes persistent on older fronds.
Troglochernes differs from all other chernetid genera by the following combination of characters: flagellum with 4 blades, or possibly 3 blades in one species; spermathecae with 2 thickened and slightly curved tubes fused basally; legs without tactile setae; carapace unicolored and with two transverse furrows; eyes or eyespots absent; vestitural setae generally small, dentate and clavate
Nonapertural exine sculpturing (Walker & Walker, 1984): (0) reticulate, beaded, spinulose, or verrucate; (1) reticulate, smooth, without tectal spinules; (2) tectum with insular protrusions; (3) rugulate, imperforate, with viscin threads; (4) psilate; (5) clavate
Diagnosis: Differs from Afrotropical congeners in having the following combination of features: long ovipositor, finely and sparsely punctate mesopleuron and dorsolateral area of propodeum, broad clypeus and clavate
flagellum of female with 20-23 segments.
trichobothria confined to about basal 1/4 length of tarsi.
2-1 mm long, also with inconspicuous clavate
hairs, especially on leaf axes.
The monotypic genus Cymophyllus with its closed white utricles, pendulous stamens, clavate
stigmas, condensed, solitary spikes and unique strap-like leaves suggested to numerous authors that its origins were enigmatic (Kukenthal, 1909; Mackenzie, 1935; Kreczetovicz, 1936; Nelmes, 1952).
