Ceratothripoides funtumiae (Bagnall) 

Physothrips funtumiae Bagnall, 1913  ; 292

This species remains known only from the original specimens from Uganda (in BMNH, SMFAbout SMF and USNMAbout USNM), together with 15 females from southern Nigeria (in BMNH). In contrast to the other species placed in this genus, the head bears ocellar setae pair I in the normal position for Thripidae  , side-by-side; the other four species have these two setae placed irregularly or even one in front of the other ( Fig. 7 View Figure ). Moreover, the metanotal reticulation is almost equiangular or even linear rather than transverse, and paired campaniform sensilla are present ( Fig. 8 View Figure ). Campaniform sensilla are also present near the anterior margin of the mesonotum, and the metafurca bears a spinula. The forewing clavus is similar to that of revelatus  , with five marginal setae and one discal seta. Antennal segments III–IV are brown with the apex contrastingly yellow (much as in Pezothrips kellyanus  ), and antennal segment VIII is twice as long as VII. In females, the campaniform sensilla on tergite VIII are anterior to the median setae. In males, tergite IX bears two pairs of moderately stout setae medially ( Fig. 10 View Figure ), and sternites III–VII bear a transverse pore plate at the anterior and three irregular rows of about 20 small pore plates behind this. Of the specimens of this species from Nigeria, four were collected with C. brunneus  at Ibadan in February, 1964, on “lily flower”.
