Thrips candidus Bournier & Bournier 

Thrips candidus Bournier & Bournier, 1988: 76 

This species from La Réunion was stated to be described from a holotype female and two males, but in the Paris Museum the holotype is accompanied by one female paratype and three males all with identical data ( Nel, 2008). The female paratype and one of the males have been examined, and the species is discussed above under T. bourbonensis  of which it is likely to prove to be the senior synonym.

Diagnosis. Body and legs yellow, antennal segments IV –VII brown, forewings pale. Antennae 7 - segmented. Ocellar setae III small, just inside anterior margins of ocellar triangle. Metanotum with longitudinal reticulation medially, median setae far from anterior margin; campaniform sensilla present. Tergite VIII with comb of long slender microtrichia; sternites III –VII with 3 to 8 discal setae.
