Tusothrips sumatrensis (Karny) 

Anaphothrips sumatrensis Karny 1925: 27  .

Anaphothrips (Chaetanaphothrips) aureus Moulton 1936: 266  . Mycterothrips pseudosetiprivus Ramakrishna and Margabandhu 1939: 42  . Taeniothrips calopgomi Zhang 1981: 324  . syn.n.

Tusothrips calopgomi ( Zhang 1981: 324)  . ( Palmer 1992: 7)

Described from China as an unusual species of Taeniothrips  without a comb of microtrichia on tergite VIII, calopgomi  was transferred subsequently to Tusothrips  by Palmer (1992: 7), based on the long mouth cone, and presence of craspeda on the posterior margins of the abdominal tergites and sternites. We have compared the type specimens of calopgomi  with T. sumatrensis  , and consider there is no distinction between them. The fore wing has a dark transverse marking, with the entire clavus equally dark.

Three species of Tusothrips  were listed from China by Mirab-balou et al. (2011: 732), but with T. aureus (Moulton)  and calopgomi Zhang  now considered synonyms of T. sumatrensis  only one species of this genus is now recorded from China.

Specimens examined. CHINA, Guangdong Province, Shipai, Guangzhou, holotype female of calopgomi  from Calopgomium endecaphylla  , 1.i. 1974, coll. Zhang Wei-qiu. (in SCAU).

Paratypes: 2 females collected with holotype, same data; Hainan Province, Sanya, 3 females from C. endecaphylla  , 12.iii. 1975, coll. Ren Peiyu. Further material. Guangdong Province, Chebaling National Nature Reserve, 2 females from Pueraria  sp., 24.iv. 1989; Guangzhou, 1 female from Calopgomium sp., 24.iv. 1989, coll. Tong Xiao-li.

Distribution. China (Yunnan, Guangdong, Hainan, Hunan); India to Indonesia, Philippines.
