Panchaetothrips noxius Priesner

Panchaetothrips noxius Priesner, 1937: 172 –175.

The genus Panchaetothrips comprises 6 species from the Old World tropics (Africa, Japan, India, Nepal, Australia, Philippine Islands, New Guinea), of which only P. indicus Bagnall was known from India ( Bhatti 1990). P. no x i u s is the second species reported from India and can be easily distinguished from other species of this genus by the presence of forked sense cones on antennal segments III and IV. It was described from coffee leaves at Nioka, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and subsequently reported from Zaire, Uganda and Tanzania, and it was presumed to be endemic to Africa. This is the first report of this species outside Africa.

Diagnosis. Female macroptera. Body dark brown ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 1 – 6 ). Antennal segments I–II, VI and VII brown, III–V pale yellow with light brown shade at apical 1 / 3, VIII yellowish brown. Femora brown with lighter apex, tibiae brown with apical fourth yellow. Tarsi yellow. Fore wings greyish brown with white spot at fork of first vein. Head with ocellar setae III situated at the tangent. Antennal segments III and IV each with forked sense cone. Inner pair of setae on tergite II dark, strong and long. Tergite IX of male with a small median pair of setae and strong lateral setae. Abdominal sternites III–VII each with long, transverse, linear pore area.

Material studied. INDIA, Uttarakhand, Dehradun, 1 female on Amomum subutatum (Black cardamom), 3.iii. 2014, (Reg. No. 6503 /H 17), Dharmendra Singh.
