The Chlorocyphidae are easily recognized as a family. Unlike other Zygoptera so far recorded in Africa, they have a short thick body and a characteristic snout-like epistome. The wings are narrow, petiolate and have an elongate pterostigma. References and diagnoses are detailed in the author's Catalogue (1962a). The family is well represented in tropical Asia.
