Tetraceratothrips agrestis Bagnall, 1924: 628

This species was described from a single male (in BMNH), taken in April 1914 at “Austinmer”, a locality that is presumed to be just South of Sydney. No single population of this species has yet been located, but three females and one male have been identified from four different localities in southeastern Queensland. The post-ocular cheek setae of agrestis are particularly long and slender ( Fig. 15 View FIGURES 11 – 20 ) and, as in uptoni , the compound eyes are elongate dorsally around the ocellar region, and the abdominal tergites bear more than one pair of wing-retaining setae. However, the tube is slightly longer, about 1.1 times as long as the head in females.
