Bamboosiella lewisi ( Bagnall, 1921) 

( Figs 9–12View FIGURES 9–12, 41, 42View FIGURES 37–44)

Mesothrips lewisi Bagnall, 1921: 366  .

Bamboosiella lewisi (Bagnall)  : Okajima, 1995a: 317.

Previously this species was known only from Japan ( Okajima 2006), although it was described originally as a species of the genus Mesothrips  . In this study, B. lewisi  is recorded from China for the first time and all specimens were collected from the living leaves of bamboo. It belongs to the large-body group of the genus Bamboosiella  . It is easily distinguished from its congeners by the following characteristics: (1) body uniformly brown except bicoloured antennae in both sexes ( Figs 41, 42View FIGURES 37–44); (2) head elongated and blunt postocular setae longer than eye ( Fig. 9View FIGURES 9–12); (3) pronotum surface smooth, am reduced to minute setae and other 4 major setae well developed with blunt apex ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 9–12) and (4) the fore femora slightly enlarged and tarsal tooth of female stronger than those in male ( Figs 11, 12View FIGURES 9–12).
