Neohydatothrips flavens (Moulton) 

( Fig. 21View FIGURES 15 – 23)

Sericothrips flavens Moulton, 1941: 316  .

Female macroptera. Colour: yellow with light brown markings as follows: anterior area of head, slender transverse pronotal blotch, mesonotal anterior margin; tergites II –VII with antecostal ridge dark and brown markings anterolaterally, VII –VIII with faint shading medially, IX –X yellow; fore wing grey, darkest sub-basally, apex pale; antennal segments I –II pale, III pale medially, also base of IV; hind tibiae yellow, femora lightly shaded.

Structure: Occipital apodeme close to but not confluent with posterior margin of eyes, ocellar area striate ( Fig. 21View FIGURES 15 – 23); antennal segments III & IV with apex constricted into short neck; pronotum transversely striate including blotch with markings between the striae, transverse row of setae along anterior margin of blotch ( Fig. 21View FIGURES 15 – 23); mesonotum and metanotum striate; metasternal plate with shallow emargination; fore wing second vein with one or two setae distally; tergites VII –VIII with complete comb of microtrichia on posterior margin but comb short medially on VII, no comb on remaining tergites; tergite IX with 2 pairs of mid-dorsal setae.

Material studied. Holotype female, BRAZIL, Minas Gerais, 22.vi.1933 ( CASAbout CAS). 

Comments. This species is known from a single female. Specimens in USNMAbout USNM bearing this name are now considered to be the new species described below, N. ikelus  sp. n. The holotype is not in good condition, but the striate ocellar area is characteristic, and there are fine lines between the pronotal striae in contrast to N. ikelus  . The fore wing is extensively but weakly shaded, with an indistinct paler area medially and the extreme apex pale, and antennal segment III is distinctly shaded at base and apex.
