Sericothrips daedalus Hood, 1954: 201  .

Female macroptera. Colour: body strongly bicoloured ( Fig. 88View FIGURES 80 – 91), brown on head, mesonotum, metanotum, tergites II –IV laterally, tergites VII –IX; fore wing with 3 dark and 3 pale bands, apex pale, clavus dark with pale setae; antennal segments I –II light brown, III and base of IV pale; hind tibiae yellow with light shading medially.

Structure: Occipital apodeme close to but not confluent with posterior margin of eyes, ocellar area irregularly reticulate; antennal segments III & IV constricted to short apical neck; pronotum transversely reticulate without internal markings, blotch well-defined and transversely striate; mesonotum and anterior part of metanotum striate; metasternal plate with shallow emargination; fore wing second vein with 1 or 2 setae; tergites VII –VIII with complete comb of long microtrichia on posterior margin, VI with comb shorter than diameter of campaniform sensilla, no comb on remaining tergites; tergite IX with 2 pairs of mid-dorsal setae.

Male macroptera. Similar to female, but smaller and with tergite VII pale.

Material studied. Holotype female and paratype male, BRAZIL, Santa Catarina State, Nova Teutônia [Seara], on Luehea  , 25.v.1949 ( USNMAbout USNM)  .

Comments. This species remains known only from the type series of 3 females and 3 males collected from Luehea  [ Tiliaceae  ] in February, 1949 at Nova Teutônia. It is closely related to N. fasciatus  , but is more boldly coloured and has the pronotal sculpture reticulate instead of transversely reticulate to striate.
