Caloparyphus are large, black flies with some abdominal patterning. Caloparyphus is distinguished from other Nearctic Oxycerini by the elongated antenna, pedicel shorter than the combined length of the basal three flagellomeres, the scutellar spines separated by at least their length (if the scutellar spines are closer, the wing with only scattered microtrichia distally), and aedeagus trifurcated distally (James 1981).
