Phaulothrips sibylla Mound, 1974: 84

The original two specimens from which this species was described were macropterous females. These came from two sites in Queensland; the holotype from 120km south of Gladstone, and the paratype from Mt Tamborine. The micropterae mentioned with that original description are described here as a new species, kranzae . More recently, micropterae of both sexes of sibylla have been collected, as listed below, but no further macropterae have been seen. The micropterae are very similar to the holotype, with a large pelta bearing very small lateral lobes ( Fig. 14 View FIGURES 11 – 20 ). The pre-ocellar setae arise on tubercles, but these are smaller than those of kranzae . Micropterae of both sexes have been taken on several dates at Brisbane, The Gap, and also at Kuranda in northern Queensland.
