The mediolateral lobe of the male gonostylus of Tingidoletes is reminiscent of those found in Lestodiplosis and Thripsobremia (Gagne & Bennett 1993), but in those genera, the female flagellomere necks are at least twice as long as wide, and the female cerci
have on their venter a field of closely placed, very short sensilla.
Combining the characteristic features of cerci
and titillators of the male and the subgenital plate of the female of the new species and comparing that combination with all other taxa of Rhacocleis and Pterolepis, R.

Epiphallus reduced; cercus in profile anteriorly almost entirely straight and gently curved backward subapically, with anterior protuberance between cerci
in the midlength small, posteriorly slightly concave at midlength and rounded subapically; cerci
in posterior view subtriangular, with lateral edges almost in a straight line.
Larva with robust, wide spatula with 3 to several points, and 8 short terminal papillae; antennal horns of pupa strong, broad, and serrate; female cerci
of most species fused; gonostylus attenuate in male, R5 about 3/4 of the length of wing (Mohn 1964; Gagne et al.
The Campodeidae and Projapygidae possess long or short, fragile cerci
at the tip of the abdomen and are considered herbivores or detritivores but the four other families possess a pair of well chitinised pincer-like claws distally and are predators, that is carnivorous on small arthropods or possibly also detritivores.
When male/male courtship occurred, all males lifted their abdomen and moved the cerci
