Systematics[edit source | edit]

  • belongs to the tribe Methanini[3]
  • within the tribe Methanini, the genus can be recognised by the greatly reduced, lobiform tegmina, with hind wings absent, and third and fourth segments of maxillary palps swollen in males[3]
  • D. lobipennis and D. shelfordi are uniformly dark[3]
  • D. heydeniana is light yellowish brown, darkening apically, with translucent yellow margins on thorax and abdomen[3]
  • the remaining three species (D. communis, D. semivitta and D. variegata) are very similar to each other
  • the hind tibiae of males are conspicuously expanded and flattened in D. semivitta and D. variegata, but not in any of the other species[3]
  • D. variegata is lighter in colour than D. semivitta, darkening apically.[3] The possibility of synonymy of these two nominal species has been suggested[4]
