Gonopods of male genitalia with gonocoxites and gonostyli remarkably elongate, more than six times longer than wider; gonocoxites and gonostyli with a longitudinal row of prominent, spiniform setae on their mesial surface (Figure 3.1, Figure 9.2, Figure 10.2, Figure 11.2, Figure 12.2, Figure 14.2, Figure 16.2); wings in fossil species small (up to 4 mm length) (Figure 4, Figure 5, Figure 6, Figure 7, Figure 8, Figure 10.2, Figure 12.2, Figure 14.2) NANNOTANYDERINAE
subfam. nov.
  − Gonopods of male genitalia with gonocoxite shorter, usually about three of four times as long as wide, and broad at base gonocoxites and gonostyli without prominent spiniform setae; wing usually medium or large size (7-20 mm); (Figure 3.2) TANYDERINAE

Key to Genera

1. Vein Sc longer than half wing length (Figure 16.1); rostrum elongated (Figure 15), longer than the combined length of head and thorax. Peringueyomyina
Alexander, 1921
  - Vein Sc reaching half wing length or shorter; head without developed rostrum 2
2. Vein R2 short, several times shorter than length of vein R2+3; vein Sc ending opposite or very close to fork of vein Rs into R2 and R3; at rest, gonopods about 3/4 abdomen length; (Figure 4Figure 5Figure 6Figure 7Figure 8Figure 10) Nannotanyderus
