Morphological features of Eucephalobus striatus, E. oxyuroides and E. mucronatus were compared by light and scanning electron microscopes, and the interspecific and generic relationships discussed within the family Cephalobidae. All species were found to have labial probolae, the major differential character of the subfamily Acrobelinae. Main characters differentiating the three species are the shape of the female tail and the point at which the incisures terminate posteriorly. Only in E. mucronatus do the incisures extend beyond the phasmid. Intra- and interspecific variation found in length and septation of the postuterine branch, previously believed to be diagnostic at a species level, negates its taxonomic value.
