Neohydatothrips luculentus (Moulton) 

( Fig. 29View FIGURES 24 – 31)

Sericothrips luculentus Moulton, 1938: 376  .

Female macroptera. Colour: body yellow with light brown markings, pronotum with four pairs of small light brown areas laterally that are not fused medially; tergites II –VII with antecostal ridge light brown and small paired brown markings anterolaterally, VIII –X yellow. Fore wing uniformly grey; antennal segment I pale, II light brown, III pale at base, IV mainly light brown; hind tibiae and femora yellow.

Structure: Occipital apodeme close to but not confluent with posterior margin of eyes, ocellar area not sculptured; mouth cone not long; antennal segments III & IV with apex not constricted into neck; pronotum closely transversely striate ( Fig. 29View FIGURES 24 – 31); mesonotum with median pair of setae slightly anterior to lateral pair, metanotum striate; metasternal plate with shallow emargination; fore wing second vein with two setae distally; tergite III –VII with posteromarginal comb absent medially, VIII with complete comb; tergite IX with 2 pairs of mid-dorsal setae; sternites apparently with microtrichia medially.

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

Comments. Although described from 1 female and 1 male, the male was probably a different species from the holotype ( Mound & Marullo 1996). This female is badly mounted, but is similar to N. burungae  with the pronotal striae closer, much as in typical Scirtothrips  species, and the interocellar area lacks sculpture. It is also particularly similar to N. zucchi  in having long sense cones, but can be distinguished by the characters in the key.
