Thrips aurantithoracis Hood 

Thrips aurantithoracis Hood 1932: 135 

Known only from the holotype female in the collections of the USNM, this species was collected in the Cameroons, 10.xii. 1915. According to the description, the head and pronotum are yellow, but the abdomen and forewing brown, the sternites lack discal setae, tergite VIII has a well developed posteromarginal comb of microtrichia, and antennal segment IV is about 2.4 times as long as wide. This specimen has not been reexamined, and although distinguished in the key above on colour character states, there is no good evidence that the species is distinct from Thrips priesneri  . The image of the holotype metanotum ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 1 – 12; provided by David Nickle) indicates closer striation than that of priesneri  ( Fig. 42View FIGURES 31 – 43).
