This chapter describes the Tricorythidae family of mayflies found in the Oriental region. It determines the proper generic identity of Tricorythus jacobsoni Ulmer, and compares all other specimens available from the Oriental region with this species in order to find possible differences in both adult and larval arrangement of morphological characters. The chapter also provides detailed discussion on the relationships of the Oriental species to other Tricotithidae genera and subfamilies.
