Phaulothrips uptoni Mound, 1974: 85

This sharply bicoloured species ( Fig. 26 View FIGURES 21 – 29 ) was described from a single macropterous female, taken at Kanangra Walls in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales. More recently a male and female macropterae were collected from dead twigs at Pottsville, in northern New South Wales, June 2009, and five females have been studied from southeast Queensland, at Indooroopilly, Bribie Island, Barakula State Forest, and Bunya Mts. The anterior margin of the head is less vertical than in most species of the genus, the compound eyes are longer on the dorsal surface, and the tergites bear two pairs of wing-retaining setae, although the anterior pair is smaller than the posterior pair on each segment. In these three character states uptoni is similar to agrestis , despite the different body colour.
