    Abstract

    Triplocania Roelser (1990) is one of six genera in the epipsocete family Ptiloneridae, the closest genera to it being Perucania, New & Thornton (1998) and Euplocanis Enderlein (1910). These three genrera are relatively homogeneus in terms of genetalic characters adn as well as other ptiloneurids, are diagnosed mostly on basis of wings venation differences. Conforming to the diagnosis of the family of Mockford (1993), Euplocania presents the fore wing M4-branched, whereas both Perucania and Triplocania have the fore wing M 3-branched. The former differs from the latter in having the fore wing pterostigma long, shallow, with almost the same width anteriorly and posteriorly, and with the areola postica very long and shallow.
