"The adult crane flies of the subgenus Yamatotipula can be separated from most of the other subgenera of Tipula by having the tergite and sternite of 9th abdominal segment fused into a continuous ring in males. The median region of this tergite produced posterior into a simple or bifid depressed lobe with small-blackened spines. Most of the species also have their wings with dark longitudinal stripes."(1)
