Thrips tenebricosus (Priesner) 

Taeniothrips tenebricosus Priesner, 1938: 345 

This species is known only from the few original females collected in 1937 at Kivu, Zaire, and these were redescribed and illustrated by Faure (1959). It is similar to T. fumosoides  in many details, but has only three setae on the distal half of the forewing first vein.

Diagnosis. Body, legs and antennae dark, antennal segment III slightly paler at base; forewing dark with small white mark near base. Antennae 8 -segmented. Ocellar setae III small. Pronotal disc with little sculpture; posteroangular setae about 0.7 as long as pronotum. Metanotum reticulate, reticles with internal markings; median setae close to anterior margin; campaniform sensilla present. Forewing first vein with 3 setae on distal half. Abdominal tergite II with 4 lateral marginal setae; Pleurotergites without discal setae; sternites with about 10 long discal setae in single row.
