Phaulothrips barretti Mound, 1974: 83

The holotype, a male that was collected in S.E. Queensland, Mt Tamborine, is by far the smallest member of the genus and with short antennae ( Fig. 1 View FIGURES 1 – 10 ). The pelta is typical of Phaulothrips , with slender lateral wings, but the preocellar setae are short, not extending to the apex of the first antennal segment. A considerably larger female has also been studied that apparently represents this species, taken in a trap at Indooroopilly, Brisbane, on 10.iv.2009. The sensoria on antennal segments III and IV in this species are slightly longer than in the other members of the genus, but are no longer than the apical width of their segment.
