Thrips fumosoides (Priesner) 

Taeniothrips fumosoides Priesner, 1938: 349 

Described from Zaire, this is similar to T. fumosus  in appearance and sculpture, although the two differ in the sculpture of the metanotum and the position of the median setae on that sclerite. Redescribed and illustrated by Faure (1959), T. fumosoides  is possibly the same species as T. scotti  described from Ethiopia. However, the latter has the clavus and base of the forewing pale, and antennal segment III more extensively yellow.

Diagnosis. Large dark brown species, with dark forewings including clavus; mid and hind tibiae brown, tarsi yellow; antennal segment III brown with extreme base yellow. Antennae 8 -segmented. Head relatively long, ocellar setae III small on anterior margins of triangle; postocular setae II and IV minute. Pronotum medially with weak transverse lines; midlateral setae long, posteroangular setae about 0.7 of pronotal length. Metanotum reticulate ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 1 – 12), many reticles with internal markings; median setae well behind anterior margin; campaniform sensilla present. Forewing with complete setal row on first vein. Abdominal tergite II with four lateral marginal setae; tergites almost without sculpture mesad of setae S 2; VIII with complete fine comb; sternites with about 9 long discal setae, pleurotergites without discal setae.
