Thrips brevisetosus Trybom 1912: 10 

Anaphothrips cuthbertsoni Moulton, 1930: 201  Thrips spadix  var. brevipes Hood, 1932: 134  syn.n.

Described from Kenya, and the two listed synonyms from Zambia and Cameroon, this is one of seven species in the genus Thrips  that lack two pairs of elongate pronotal posteroangular setae ( Mound & Azidah, 2009). T. brevisetosus  is particularly similar in structure to T. hanifahi Mound & Azidah  from Malaysia.

Diagnosis. Body brown, tibiae and tarsi yellow, antennae brown with III paler; forewings shaded. Antennae 7 -segmented. Ocellar setae III small, anterolateral to ocellar triangle. Pronotum midline with transverse faint striae; setae all small but inner posteroangular setae a little larger than marginal setae. Metanotum reticulate, median setae far from anterior margin, campaniform sensilla present. Forewing first vein with 3 setae on distal half. Abdominal tergite VIII posterior margin concave medially, comb complete; pleurotergites without discal setae; sternites III –VII with about 15 discal setae.
