In adults of this subfamily, at least the first abdominal segment (tergum I) is devoid of any scales. In general the development of scaling has not reached the same level as in the subfamily Culicinae, often the abdomen is covered with fine setae only. The palps of both sexes are approximately the same length as the proboscis. The larvae have no discernible respiratory siphon and seta 1 of most abdominal segments is usually of the palmate type.
