Neohydatothrips basilaris (Hood) 

( Figs 15View FIGURES 15 – 23, 45View FIGURES 41 – 49, 67View FIGURES 67 – 79, 84View FIGURES 80 – 91)

Sericothrips basilaris Hood, 1941: 139  .

Female macroptera. Colour: body dark brown ( Fig. 84View FIGURES 80 – 91), tergite X pale; fore wing uniformly dark with white subbasal area; antennal segments I–III (or IV) largely pale; hind femora and tibiae brownish yellow.

Structure: occipital apodeme confluent with posterior margin of eyes, ocellar area transversely striate ( Fig. 15View FIGURES 15 – 23); antennal segments III & IV with constricted apical neck; pronotum with anterior area reticulate, blotch welldefined ( Fig. 15View FIGURES 15 – 23); mesonotum and anterior part of metanotum closely striate ( Fig. 45View FIGURES 41 – 49); metasternal plate with shallow emargination; fore wing second vein with 2 setae ( Fig. 67View FIGURES 67 – 79); tergites II–VIII with comb of microtrichia complete on posterior margin but short on anterior tergites: tergite IX with 2 pairs of mid-dorsal setae.

Material studied. Holotype female, CUBA, San Vincente , 8–9 vii.1940 ( USNMAbout USNM)  . BRAZIL, Santa Catarina State, Nova Teutônia [Seara], 14 females, 3 males, 1.i.1949 (F. Plaumann) ( USNMAbout USNM)  .

Comments. This is a large dark brown species with much red internal pigment. Described from Cuba, but recorded from Panama and Costa Rica ( Mound & Marullo 1996) and here from Brazil (Santa Catarina), the thoracic sculpture is almost unique in the genus ( Fig. 15View FIGURES 15 – 23). As in N. fimbriatus  , tergites II–VIII have a fringe of microtrichia medially on the posterior margin, although this fringe is short on the anterior tergites. Antennal segments III and IV both have a long slender apical neck.
